A perverse hobby?

Postby PfunMo » Tue Aug 15, 2017 12:27 pm

per·verse
pərˈvərs/Submit
adjective
(of a person or their actions) showing a deliberate and obstinate desire to behave in a way that is unreasonable or unacceptable, often in spite of the consequences.

I have this ozelot sword planted in most of my tanks. One main display tank out in the main view and two tanks back in my "fishroom". So where does the plant decide to put out a cute little blossum? Not in any place where people will see it nor where any pollinators will be coming by but in the tank in the back.
Oh, well! At least I can see it and possibly some of you will like it.

I don't find fish keeping to be socially unacceptable behavior but maybe to PETA???

My take was that the flower was perverse in it's choice of position.

I do like it though.

I suppose so, but why would that make the hobby perverse?

Congrats on the flowering, very pretty and a shame it's in a more hidden area of the tank.

Yes, it is not anything too uncommon but I rarely get one in the right spot. I guess it is no big thing as they only last a day or so at best. It has already folded the tent.
Perverse as well as short lived?
