I think that those yellows are amazing. I can never get enough pics of them and I haven't seen that pic - thanks for sharing.

Yellow Kiriza are like line bred Discus - have lots of cash on hand.

keeping fish in a purest fashion and trying to convince others to do so is like trying to convince everyone to follow your religion - futile.

Back to the kiriza - awesome - the color is so nice - an all yellow Troph.

These would go really well with a colony of Red Trophs!

They are bred by Burundi Farms in Africa and I doubt they will tell you what they bred to get them like that.

There offspring will be worthless mudblood's just like the parent's.
Honestly - this is an insulting statement and offensive as well.

Understand sir or mam that these fish naturally crossbreed from time to time and is how they established different variants throughout the lake.

And forget the science - it's just a downright insulting statement :?

Keep your religion to yourself :thumb:

The only guys who could possibly know what has gone into their make up and weather they will breed true would be I guess the guys who "made" em.

If I had gone to all the trouble and cost of making a fish I sure would not release the details of how to reproduce them again and thus undermine my market.

Each to there own and all that but for me the reasons for not touching these guys with a barge pole are pretty clear.

personally, i doubt this fish is a result of any crossbreeding attempt. i would suspect it to be the result of a genetic mutation. they are all too blanched of other colors, to NOT suspect, that someone is playing melanin reduction games. the eye and egg spots are especially wiped of other color. get past the yellow, and this fish looks ghostly, IMO. pass the barge pole by me too, please.

Mate just trying to stop you getting burned.
And thanks for showing them.

Anyone remember the last (agree prob mutant, line bred) lot to come out, maybe colour enhanced))? Was the mutation made more likely in various ways? (prob never know)
