Pat, exactly. Alleles, ominlies, same thing (I may be wrong...yep, I may be..)

The genetic line-up for mirrors and commons are different, no matter the "appearance.

Call them what you want. Just let me land em.

Yes, you are wrong. It is alleles. Ominlies does not seem to be a word, at least when I attempted to look it up. None the less, your analysis of the genetics are correct if you replace ominlies with allele.

Good question Miguel, I've got no idea :D

IMO, there's almost always a remote chance at a mirror :D

thanks Pat  :D

Still no one has answered the question. What is a carp with muddler scaling on one side and normal common scaling on the other. These are not uncommon here on the river. Do I call them commons or mirrors?

Can Keith please give me the definitive answer!

I thought I cleared that up T ... :D

If its not a perfect, normal common, its a mirror.

The end.

SsnN...it's a BLOODY COMMON....

So, If a guy who is born in Peurto Rico, with Peurto Rican parents, looks Italian, is he Italian? Or PEURTO RICAN???

If he was born to Puerto rican parents in Puerto rico he would be puerto rican

It's a common. Count the rays on the anal fin. 18-24 its a mirror. 25-31 its a common.

Scott,

I think there's some truth to the number of fins thing..

What about this fish? GB caught this one.
