Well hopefully it's okay to copy this in here from the other forum...I really don't know the rules. If it's not cool just delete it.





these so called camel cats have been around for a few weeks already at alot of lfs and there is a previous thread on them.dunno why anybody would buy these anyways as its ridiculously deformed but apparently there is a market here for these as quite a few have been sold in lfs.some of these breeders n farms will do anything to earn more money even if it means purposely creating deformities,hybrids etc selling them to make more $.they should just stick to breeding normal natural fish and stop purposely selling and distributing things like deformed and hybrid fishes
Absolutely ridiculous!

Not surprised though ... catfish version of the fake parrot cichlids. It was only a matter of time given how popular deformed fish are.

Thanks LJ

And honestly, I'm not surprised, I mean look how popular the Parrot Cichlid is...same exact thing.

Now days it's all about making money, morals/ethics get set aside for a minimal amount of cash.

Gross...why would anyone buy those?
Because people like to buy things that are different, and those are different. It's certainly not right to sell deformed fish IMO , but there is an unfortunate maket for this type of thing. I wish there was an effective way to halt these sorts of practices , but as long as folks are buying them they'll breeding them :( .

I might even go as fare as to creat a scene in the LFS, ya know saying (very loud) how it makes the fish sick and is just down right MEAN!

This is how we stop them. Don't buy them, don't promote them, warn new hobbyists, spread the word by starting threads like this one.
