Another hybrid talk - how uncommon, lol.

Personally I find the fish (with all its great colors) unnatural and unappealing. I appreciate what nature has done and don't intend on changing or 'bettering' it. It can be really hard to draw a line as a purist as to where it is okay to have hybrids and where it isn't based on the hobby's standards.

Example: my wife is currently into Angelfish and German Blue Rams (GBR X EGBR). As much as I dislike hybrids I still have to appreciate how much my wife cares for them. So do I hate her for liking them, no - do I like her fish, no. It is hard to really have a good discussion about how great the fish are when I dislike them. On a positive note she still wants to get some wild-type Angelfish which would make these discussions easier.

So the benefit (if you can use that word) to hybrids is that they could get more people into cichlids and eventually switched over to the pure stuff - but I would much rather try to get people hooked on the pure stuff in the first place.

In summary, I hate that fish but that's just me. Very Happy
