I saw a bunch of B. modesta in a bag floating at the local store. They were shiped as a B. modesta, but they are a little different.

The rest of the fish was typical modesta, just slightly faded due to the stress of still being in the bag from shipment. This store is a Petsmart in Exton PA, and the lead fishroom guy said he has never saw a modesta come in that way, as I was thinking it may have been due to the stress of shipement
