Most Pt. stonei that I've caught have had a wide, bluish-black lateral
stripe. When sunlight hits it at certain angles it can have a green cast to it.
The fins are a dark, orangish color with the edges being a little darker.
Hopefully we will find some during the collecting trips at the convention.
