if you are referring to my greyish white oscar...i beg to disagree... i never altered anything about them, give them good natural foods, and they grew up to huge 14" (excluding tail) oscar without any defect... they spawned, and gave me a lutino offspring.

i do believe that fishes can mutate into different types and colors as they breed in captivity....
same is true with dwarf shrimps from red cherry shrimps to red reli shrimps.... in time.

short body are purposely bred that way and have internal issues, just like fancy gold fish and blood parrots

strawberry and blueberry are dye injected < poor form

i concur with Rocksor... any artificially produced fish is not acceptable
including the dyed and stunt fish... that is also the main reason why
i never use enhancer... always natural foods for all my fish

That´s why I made that remark... I could never have a fish like those... natural hibrids I can accept but dye injected and some genetic transformations I dislike it a lot.
