Thank you, Passionfish! They will get prettier and I will get better at taking pics and we'll be able to see them better. *I* like them. I can't not like a Pelvie. They're so damn cute. (Though I don't like the 'long-nosed' ones.)

Wow. I didn't mean to stir something up and create a ruckus. Just state how I feel about what *I* do. I never get on anyone that does hybrids or whatever. That's they're business. My business is I stay away from them. I don't comment, I don't give anyone grief, I keep to myself. Now... If someone would ASK me... LOL!

I just have to do what I feel is ethical for me. I have standards so unrealistically high, I can't even attain them. And I've been known to cut my nose off to spite my face many, many, many times before. I just have to do what I believe is the correct thing to do. For *me*.

I don't understand all that you typed, Passionfish, and I'll try to. IF it's okay to breed these since it's the same species but different morphs, I would like to.

We'll see. We certainly aren't going to put this to bed tonite. I just what to do what I consider best for me. That's all. Will take some thought and decision making.

The Pelvies are the smallest fish in the tank. Everyone is getting along. They don't like green flakes. One large female hangs to herself. Everyone seems happy - you should see their smiles! LOL!

Bobber, the four items you listed about breeding fish - sports, etc. - is that your opinion OR the opinion of a fish biologist you agree with or the practices of a well respected fish place... like a museum, or aquarium?

Just wondering. I just want to know if I agree with YOU or with Joe The World Renowned Fish Hunter from the World's Best Aquarium. Like are you quoting someone/someplace or are those your own ideas? (Why I just couldn't say that to begin with I don't know!)
