    Any of you guys know how this nasty creature is produced? The body shape looks all wrong to me…

    it’s a bloody crime that these people produce things like this, why can’t they just leave it up to nature.?
    here’s a pic i took a couple of days ago of some i got from my mate little Al Vass, they are superb and tank bred.
    no colour touch up was used.

    Oh no what’s happened to the Inlecypris?

    I have seen them in at least a dozen shops now and they horrific, their shape is not as sleek and streamlined as it should be and their faces are rounded with what can only be described as a drooping mouth

    …yeah and they’re from a relatively restricted gene pool in the first place. Bloody hell. My Inlecypris were such lovely, streamlined fish.

    Back to the monstrosity in the pic; do you think these are line-bred or hybridised with something else?

    Hard to say Matt, either way they look pretty screwed up

    I have a couple of dozen harlequins only a couple of yards to my left and that pic is of a very unattractive fish. What’s the point?

    Hey

    Sri Lanka is not a country quickly associated with the production of fish for the aquarium. However, according to information given to me by one of the FNAS Judges, this is the country of ‘original origin’ of the cultivated gold form of Harlequin Rasbora.

    As a strange quirk it appears that the breeder concerned produced this strain during attempts to produce a Harlequin with no gold colour in the body.

    I have seen the commercially produced Inlecypris and they are a sad sight.

    Regards David
