It is in the fish's best interest not to reproduce. Though he would have more difficulty swimming than other less deformed fish, he would make a good pet since he is indeed gorgeous.
I personally do not understand why he costs $150 when I'm sure Aquastar17 knows how the fry will turn out. It also shows that Aquastar does not care that he has to cull hundreds of fish just to have one really nice one, but business is business :/ As a future Vet and lover of all animals big and small, I do indeed think it is stupid to purposefully reproduce things that harm animals.
I am sorry to have offended you.
No worries. I overreacted and I'm over it. :)
I don't plan to bred FT's or RT's...and I wasn't serious about buying him (well MAYBE if I had money to blow, teehhee)), I agree. I find Aquastar to be pretty irresponsible with his dumbos and FT's...shows a lack of...caring for animals and other people (the price and the culling) :) But, like you said...if you can get money for it and you aren't worried about the consequences why not, right? :) Kinda messed up! I'm sure he feels differently about it though, and I don't mean to bash him. :)
I'm sorry that I made you say sorry you offended me (heehee) I really was just reading to much into it and whatever.......... I think you rock, so no problems :)
