Redhead

Yep its a scalie , have caught a very odd one with a tiny touch of red , nothing like that but.

From my limited knowledge its not good , and maybe a water quality , toxic issue.

Apprently fish can react this way to poor water quality , and there own defences create this red reaction , whatever it is,

to fight the toxin, but the anti-body they create ends up  poisoning them anyway.

Its common in some aqarium fish , and known in saltwater fish occasionly.

Might have swam too close to the Kwinana area?, was it ammo jetty or rocko jetty caught?
