I dont want to sound rude, that isn't my intention at all. I just dont understand why you want to show a fish that you had nothing to do with making what it is.
Like with horses, yeah, you can buy a nice horse, but you have to work with it to get it to a showable level. Same with rabbits, and dogs, and all of that. With fish that isnt the case. Yeah, you have to make them flare to build strength and feed them, but thats as simple as a mirror and food. You really arent proving you accomplished anything yourself by sending someone elses work to a show.
