    There are only very few sports of the paradise fish. The best known is the blue sport which was developed in the 1950ies. Albinos exist much longer already. Only in the 1990ies a stripeless, deep red sport was developed by the breeders of ornamental fish.

    Well, at least it’s an ornamental strain and not deformed or tattooed…but would still never buy it of course.

    Some people may refer to the likes of us ‘ere as fishkeeping snobs…

    Nevertheless it’s ‘us’ messing with nature – and we do that way too easily and way too often; it’s unethical. If you ask me.
