I live in Ohio in the US. About an hour from where I live there is a distributor selling cross bred Denisonii. Here are some pictures.

This one is crossed with Puntius Everetti:

Hey

Although I have not seen any of these fish 'in the flesh' the denisonni x everetti have been available in the U.K.

Hybrid fish have become an 'everyday sight', in particular through Synodontis, in aquatic retail outlets in recent times.

Disgusting. /angry.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":angry:" border="0" alt="angry.gif" /> How much are they charging for the pleasure of owning these Stu? Great pictures, by the way. Can I use them on the species information page please?

Cake or death?

They are charging $2.00 per fish.

These pictures are of juveniles, like most of the pictures this distributor uses.

The pictures are not mine, I got them from the distributors aquabid auctions.

If you want to look them up on aquabid.com there seller name is "Tropicalfishdistributors".

Or their website is http://www.tfdfish.com
