    Hi all,

    1st post to ask what the he11 is this, twin lakes in Dublin.
    It weighed in at 5 lbs, thought it was a carp with a broke tail but, the color and scales are different?
    I've searched and can't find this one....cluless?

    Like I said, looks kinda like a carp but with a different scale and color pattern and it's tail turned up..?

    I love to fish and shoot and I'm on to other forums...so thanks for the welcomes in advance..

    StuckAtHome Mad SOT YAKER!

    Tried looking up all the different carp found here, and my guess is a normal carp that needs a chiropractor!
     
  4. I have somadem in my fish tank. I cull all that look like that though. Every now and then I get a couple of those HOOK FISH in my fancy guppy tank. Think it comes from in-breeding ( too many brothers and sisters :p ) in a confined space. Mike:D

    Looks like a common carp. The color and scales do vary in some carp. Probably from the chemicals they pick up in the water and genetics. I've caught carp in the 'O' that were very light to very dark, some with smaller scales some with larger scales. For this to be a Mirror Carp it would need patchy scales. Better photo and we probably could confirm.
     
  8. I caught a carp at Alum with a similar issue, he was kinda "S" shaped. I'm not sure what causes it, there was no signs of scaring...like he had been hit by a boat or something...
     
  9. As AK would have said, "Thats a mirror carp dude."
