If it was possible then I'm quite sure somebody would have done it by now.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

X2; you know those "mad scientists" in the far East would have done that by now, considering all the mishappen mutated hybrids that are out there for sale as we speak........ :evil:

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

South American cichlids are not able to make hybrids outside of their own genus (with one possible exception). Central American cichlids are able to make hybrid fish out of their own genus.

Even if you were to squeeze out the eggs and sperm and mix them in a bowl, it wouldn't work. Koi farmers do this to get the characteristics out of the parents without having to wait for them to pair up.

You would have to work at the gene splicing level or put them in the Chernobyl water ways.

Would you buy a 3-eyed fish?
