It shipped from Cali. Was supposed to be an African Mag. Here's a pic of the mouth.
Sorry about the blurriness on the 2nd pic. It was right after I did a WC and added the Cipro. Thanks for the help!

Mags have those lines that radiate from the mouth and around it in a circular fashion? Most mags I have seen have been a solid color on the body.

Yea after a lot of time spent looking at comparisons (while sickly) I am about 98% sure it's a BTA. I think LA saw the bright orange foot (which has since turned pink) and labeled it a Mag. Thanks for the help!
