Artist Note: At times customers or anglers request us to use a reference photograph to paint by. If so our skilled artists will identify any unique characteristics in the photo which are later reflected in the completed paint scheme. This is why no two mounts are ever exactly alike and explains the differences you may see in the coloration of the various mounts. If you have a photo or description, please send it by email to email@example.com
Like many other species of fish, the Lookdown is also able to generate loud grunts with their swim bladder and pharyngeal teeth when it feels threatened. The Lookdown is naturally a schooling fish. This species of fish is never observed alone; the Lookdown will always be found with at least one other fish. The Lookdown’s unusual shape allows distinctive maneuverability. The Lookdown fish is quick and able to make sharp turns and dashes in order to catch their food and escape possible predators.
The Lookdown has long filaments from its dorsal fin and anal fin. The first dorsal fin, which is located on the fish’s back, has eight spines. The Lookdown has guanine pigments which make up the Lookdown’s skin. This silvery color reflects light and flashes like a silver mirror. The rest of the fish is extremely compressed while the forehead is blunt. The Lookdown also has a projecting lower jaw. The long filaments do not appear too long when seen on an adult Lookdown; however, they can appear seaweed-like, thin, and extremely long while the Lookdown is quite young. Although the Lookdown fish is also known as the threadfin look down and bluntnose, it gets its name from its appearance because the fish seems to be looking down its nose as a snobbish, judgmental person would do.
The Lookdown ranges from Western Atlantic Ocean; from Uruguay through the Caribbean to Nova Scotia. The Lookdown fish is mainly found in shallow coastal waters over mud or sand-covered bottoms. However, juvenile Lookdowns are typically found near sandy shores or in estuaries in sea grass beds and harbor piers.
Whether you choose to supply your own photos or not, the same care and attention to detail will be given in crafting and painting your mount.
