Lemon Jake vs. Sunshine

Post by Jadair » Thu Jan 24, 2019 12:35 pm

I acquired this fish as did the previous owner as a Lemon Jake, after researching it appears similar to a "Yellow Regal" to me? Is there another name for a Yellow Regal? Is a Yellow Regal considered a Sunshine? Any assistance would be amazing! Thanks.

To better Identify this fish a whole profile shot level with the fish would be helpful. In trying to do this kind of Identification at my house as well the head is one of the most obvious places they differ.

That is not a lemon jake, they have a very distinct body shape. Hard to tell with the pick.
