Cue Richard Wilson; "I....don't...belieeeeeeve it!" Possibly B. badis x B. ruber or assamensis? What do you guys think? /blink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blink:" border="0" alt="blink.gif" /> From the blurb: "There can be no doubt that these animals are hybrids." Oh man...

One question comes to mind.

Why?

Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

It seems to be all about money imo. E.g. B. assamensis comes in and it's gorgeous. Unfortunately hardly anyone goes to collect the wild fish so its retail price is relatively high. Unscrupulous breeder figures expensive fish = demand so tries to create something similar-looking which can potentially bring the bucks in; hence this new monstrosity. Sigh...

Andy, buffoon is surely too polite! /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

ruber x badis or a line bred sport. Glaser seems to be bringing in a lot of hybrids.

Cheers Keith, good to know. /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" /> Did you manage to get hold of some gypsum or are you trying something else? How much are you going to charge them for the Cobitis then? 50% will do me. /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

The example of the Piebald-Badis clearly shows on the other hand that it is very dangerous to cross fish of unknown origin. Nevertheless these hybrids are pretty aquarium inhabitants that can be kept like all Badis.

from glaser website -
'dangerous to cross fish of unknown origin' but hey , what the hell, they are pretty and theyll sell.

dissapointing.
