If you bought it at a LFS and it is a serra, chances are it is either a rhomb, spilo, or spilo cf with spilo cf being the leading candidate. Those are the serras I have seen in Wisconsin LFS.
Without a picture it makes it a little hard to tell what you have. :smile:

Wow other people from wisconsin actually, I thought I was the only one. Anyone in the Milwaukee area? Also where did you get your fish from, price, size of it etc... Just go on download.com and download a program that will convert the image to another format either .gif or even .jpg, you might even want to just open up microsoft paint, then resave the image as .jpg or .gif it should be that easy,
then upload on here.

Hi there fellow Milwaukeean! In the last 3 years I have come across only 2 rhoms in the Milwaukee area, one being a 10 incher for $100.
My suggestion is to stop waisting money and time and just order one on line.

A little tip: This is not etched in stone but true baby rhoms will likeley have little or no red in them. Look for (depending on size) yellow or gold hues and a heavier jaw structure than say, spilopleura.

Spilopleura CF, AKA S. Medinae is my impression. Not a rhom.
