Going into my local petco, I was thankful I know the IBC standards for fish, because the "halfmoons" they were selling were at best super deltas, and mostly just deltas. I got kinda mad before I chilled out and was like, "Non of the people shopping here are breeders, they are pretty, they will get homes."
I love breeding, and sometimes I can find a gem, and I love they work and mystery of spawning out a good line.
Gah, my baby girl (not really a baby), Isha, a VT Female was in BROWN water when I bought her, and was an inch long. She had finrot really bad and was suffering. Me, not knowing anything about fish bought a .5 gallon fish "tank" without gravel or plants:( She somehow survived and is happily residing in a 10 gallon tank with 2 ASFs and is 2.5 inches!!!!!!!!! She likes biting my finger too, and loves pellets. But I feel bad for the fishies I leave behind, although sometimes I sneak some pellets from home into their cups since the workers never feed them at Walmart. All five of my fish are rescues, and are very happy.
that dragon goby looked kind of like a sculpin, (bottom-feeding fish with poisonous spines, you can Google them for a picture) I catch them out of rivers and lakes sometimes, I had a pretty cool tank too, until I caught one from green lake that happened to be infected with ich... killed all of the rest in a few days. :( I could'nt do a thing. they died despite the meds. :(
