I agree with someone being full on there evaluatipn and pointing out faults. But I love his looks. Carter is a pet store fish that is bad quality too.

He is a lovely fish and in much better condition than often found at the pet shops. The red wash fault for me makes him very flashy for you. However.. it was asked..
I just wanted some honest opinions on him other than the typical "oh he's cute."

He is not show quality. No need to go into detail why as he is a good find. I'd just enjoy him. If you want to learn more about what we look at and develop an eye for faults, I review nice fish sold on AB and point out what makes them good.. as well as where they need work in the coming generations. Just do a search and like the page. And you are welcome to ask questions if you don't understand or need more clarity.

I dont get why people ask for honest opinions then get upset when someone does just that?

I believe she got upset because the honest opinion was in someone elses opinion "Blunt" but to most everyone else was very rude.

There is a way to give an opinion in a respectful manner.

I think the critique and blunt opinion was fine.

It was the attitude of "get out of this thread we don't like your mutt fish dirtying up our beautiful show fish forum" that was totally uncalled for.

What is uncalled for is having an entire forum to make these request. But no.. you come in to the SHOW fish section and want your pet shop fish evaluated then don't like what you hear. And then I'm rude because I tick off the faults and am annoyed people can't respect this ONE section for what it was set up for. To discuss SHOW fish and SHOWING fish.
