    They openly admit to producing hybrid Synodontis as well. Clown loach fry pics here: http://www.bioaquatix.com/blog.py

    Well, it is a business, and breeding hybrids is not illegal…

    But the list of the problematic fish at the end (“We are conducting research on the following fish”) is strange… For instance, Dwarf Rainbow (I assume m.praecox) is about the easiest to breed fish one can find.

    Hi

    Chromobotia macranthus: It’s typical for dubious breeders. Bred with the help of hormons, stripped eggs, bad elevating. In consequence the spawn shows degenerative damages, “wrong” patterns. Not even the name is correct.

    And: Synodontis multipunctatus ist in reality S. grandiops …

    In last AMAZONAS hybrids of Puntius denisonii x P. filamentosus and Epalzeorhynchos frenatus X E. kalopterus were shown.

    Or take the offer for a package of eggs of Nothobranchius korthause, for 4 years children up.

    Nobody needs it but it never ends.

    Cheers Charles

    I never said it was Mike, just thought it worth pointing out in the context of your initial post. As for the other stuff, perhaps they’re hybridising, trying to produce new colour strains, or their hormone techniques haven’t worked so welll on the species mentioned?

    “breeding hybrids is not illegal…”

     

    I think maybe it should be. At least regulated.

    You saw Gary’s suggestion? “Burn the place down”. :P Personally, I have no problems with hybrids, as long as they are properly labelled…we can learn something new from knowing what can be hybridized with what.

    But Matt is onto something here: there is a strange connection between doing hybrid synos and clown loaches: the chap who crossed clowns with yoyo’s also played with synos. Perhaps he is consulting for this Florida outfit?

    Matt, donno….
