LOL! corrected what?  

 

Call them what you want.

 

At the end of the day, a wild blue will always look like a wild blue and yours does not. 

 

Try doing some research somewhere other than Facebook lol.

corrected you saying that is a mixed breed. You don't just get a mixed breed it needs to have a mutant gene which is a one in a million and didnt I tell you twice now that im doing more research?
I said what I said, he said it might not be a wild so I said I will do some research. not my fault he had a sad

Not having a sad. Actually laughing at you dribble.

I never said mixed breed.

A wild blue can breed with another 'strain' and still be the same species genius.

The resulting fry won't all look like the parents.

Just like your pair will result in a mixture of fry.

You're the one jumping up and down trying to prove you know something lol.

You probably don't even realise most of the 'fancy' strains getting around are line bred descendants of hybrid discus.

At the end of the day the fish is in YOUR tank. Who cares where it comes from, what variant etc etc, As long as you like it that's all that matters and all that should matter IMO.

I don't like my fish because it's wild caught or a more expensive variant. I like my fish because they are entertaining and interesting to watch and I like looking after them.

Agreed ^

I don't care where the fish come from. As long as I like them, that's all that matters to me. I couldn't care less if everyone hates them... (Certain fish in mind) if I like them, that's all that matters.

That's true Red but people should still know what they have lol.

MattyB, you said yourself, you have no idea where your fish came from which would make it safe to assume, you have no clue about the genetics of that fish. So how can you say with 100% certainty what the fish will even produce lol!

Have a look at the Mendelian Principles and try not to hurt your brain too much.

That's all I'll say on this. Arguing with stupid gets you no where.

Congratulations on the spawn. I agree no need to start a slinging match however I am afraid judging from the photos you have posted, it's very unlikely you have a wild blue. Good luck with rearing them and keep us posted.

Did some research, and your right, what I said it's true but only to a certain degree, eg mutant gene in a discus is more sold things,diff amount of bars, complete diff base colour etc. wilds have a a main body colour were mine doesn't have that. I got gipped, my apollogises I just got angry over the smart remark. i still think he is a very nice discus but not something I want to breed.
