After seeing the Kissing Gourami, I decided to try to make one of my bala sharks (we loooove balas in this household). I used the ones in my tank as reference, but here's a photo too just in case you don't know what one looks like



I'm not completely happy with it, but definitely relieved that it at least LOOKS like a bala! Cheesy There was no pattern, I made it up as I went along and it took about an hour.

Aw, this makes me miss our Balas.  It's adorable, though - and definitely recognizable. Cheesy

Thanks everyone!! Grin  It's my first time making something without a pattern, so I wasn't sure how it would turn out.

He's about 5 inches long, tip to tail.
