    as much as I love talldutchie's info and seems like a great person, he (i think.. no offense if its she) gets very passionate about this stuff. not necessarily a bad thing, but some people take offence to it...

    What I think talldutchie is going for is the fact that it is a man made fish, like blood parrots, some people just don't like that sort of thing

    I was kinda hoping for other Flowerhorn owners to chip in, or atleast other CA keepers.

    You have to bare in mind, this is my pet, so if you get offended, whats the point in trying to offend me?

    I don't think this site is for me, i mean its dead, and not very inviting, cheers.

    one person said 1 thing, and you think the entire site is anti hybrid... if you don't want to be on here that is your choice, for a forum it's pretty active with pretty good advice. Sorry you don't / didn't feel welcome, I thought what I was saying was supposed to be supportive and complementing your pet

    one thing I have said countless times on here is to not take things personal... it's the internet, anyone can say anything

    I gave an opinion after being specifically asked to do so. OP could have ignored my initial comment about the fish itself and just responded to the décor suggestion. And for the record, I know these fish are not dyed but, like goldfish, selectively bred for these colours.

    agreed, and I know that you are very knowledgeable about this hobby of ours, but there has even been times when i was like "what a [jerk]" <-censored lol. Eh, whatever, we're all here to better each other, and if some people don't like the opinions of others, they really don't need to listen to them

    We all have that. There's some people here that frequently get up my nose. Comes from the fact it's all written communications I think

    And that's referring to me I assume?

    Well... let me offer an olive branch them. Wow, what a stunning fish! Obviously well developed and the pattern is amazing!

    Well this went nowhere quickly.

    Personally, for the record. I would prefer keeping an oscar instead of a mutant like a flowerhorn. However, that's my preference and everyone is entitled to their own.
