Many years ago I had one in a 100-gallon tank and I felt so bad for him being stuck in a tank...I had gotten him from a neighbor who didn't want him anymore. He had a great personality...really mean...I really liked him but long story short he met his end by a very talented lid-removing cat. I will never keep fish again, I feel too bad for them, plus the cat thing.

I know the mutations are contraversial, but those were some of the most beautiful fish, especially the Blood Angel, I have seen in a while. I had no idea that a fish could breed with another species. I have never had fish so I didn't know much about them. Very interesting article. I can see how they might become a problem if they pushed out a local species, but they sure are adaptive. Great article Andrija, thank you for the great post and the lovely pictures!

It's all about education, fisherman just go out to see without such an important factor. Really!

My mother used to have aquariums in the house. She just loved fish. She also loved birds. I loved cats and dogs, I am not sure where we came with all of the differences.

Very interesting. I agree Andrea Dorazio - can not watch them in a small tank. The cat thing is funny.
