I just hope all the work I'm putting into it actually shows when I get it in the tank. The texture is twice the dimensions of the old one (4X the number of pixels). Part of the realism of the old version came from the false shading around the belly area (the shading was simply part of the texture). I can't do that any more, because the fish will now be able to bank, and even turn completely upside-down if they wish. It would look unrealistic if the shadows remained on the lower side during such maneuvers.
