Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

lol, just wondering, i have been on lots of forums and you wouldnt believe, well you probably would.. I like this one and wanna stay,
well guess i could put my view.. which i am 50/50 on it, I like some hybrid fish and not 100% on how they are made, if you put 2 differant types of fish and they mate on there own, no problem but when dying, injection or artifcial stuff is being done I dont like it.

Ok, maybe not purely "black & brown", but not far...

Those angels do not appear to be a naturally ocurring wild species. Look up P.scalare, P. leopoldi and P. altum.
Also, that is only one variety of discus found in the wild.

While I have a had time saying anything about Pink Angels(I bred Black-Lace Super-Veils) I can talk about Culling. Every once in a while, due purely to genetics, I would get some young that weren't all Black( Heavily Marbled) or had deformed or non-veiled finnage. These I would cull, to a 250 gallon Fiberglass, aerated and heated tank in my Garage. They were fed and cared for until I hit a certain population level. Then I would put an Ad in a couple of the nearby newspapers and call some of the petstores I sold to and would have a free giveaway with the proviso that they not breed them. After two or three days my Tank was usually empty.
These Angels would range from dime-sized to half-dollar sized. I just couldn't be ruthless with them and they got a lot of people interested in the hobby. People would set up tanks and call me, asking when my next giveaway was. I gave them out four at a time to individuals and eight at a time to the fishstores. I would try to make sure at least half were not deformed.
Running this tank bit into my profits a bit but, made me feel a lot better about myself. And, it was great PR.
Every Breeder a responsibility to the fish they breed when dealing with culls. You have two options, euthanize or find them a home. My wife thought it was funny, I'm a long-time hunter and fisher. She thought it pretty weird that I could take a Deer or Turkey or a Pheasant but, couldn't kill a fish.

Alot of good points but I would not buy them. I've been interested in the Zebra Glo-fish for some time but they are illegal in California.Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

good for you and really funny your wife mentioned that.
different when its your own pet you are raising.
back to the OP.
i couldn't get myself to purchase those fish.
1: i think they are ugly
2: when modifying any animal like this and it does more harm..i'm not supporting it.
humans have been messing with genes and breeding since they were discovered. for the sake of science and discovery, i'm all for it as a learning experience. but if they try to mass produce/sell it. not my cup of tea.
