i measure TL - total length.. which is tip of head to end of tail.

here is abit of info i found:

Standard length (SL) refers to the length of a fish measured from the tip of the snout to the posterior end of the last vertebra or to the posterior end of the midlateral portion of the hypural plate. Simply put, this measurement excludes the length of the caudal fin.

Total length (TL) refers to the length from the tip of the snout to the tip of the longer lobe of the caudal fin, usually measured with the lobes compressed along the midline. It is a straight-line measure, not measured over the curve of the body.

It will be bristlenoses, peacocks and afras plus good to know info so I know when to sell.

I guess with some long finned fish giving both would be a good idea.
