That red dragon looks like a flower horn ciclid, oml. The yellow Bicolor Tree posted is pretty spoonheaded/short bodied, and the one Kader posted has a deformed spine. Ugh. Some people, it's just sad

@Tree Could be...or a weird pile-up of dragon scaling...either way, that can't be good for the fishy.

@KaderTheAnt I've actually seen QUITE a few girls like that on Ebay from one seller in particular?
Some have x-factor scaling, and all of them may me think that that breeder took "Females should have a straight top line..." WAY too seriously.
None of them look right. X'D

@ThatFishThough isnt it! Why would people do this to poor fish. I hate to say it but some of these fish shouldnt been culled a long time ago...
@angeliza Yeah, shes one of them and in my opinion the worst out of them. Id hate to see what the males from that spawn turned out to be if the females are looking like that.

Kader, these fish shouldn't have even been bred in the first place. Now, I understand if it was one out of a hundred babies, but I would not breed the parents again nor would I continue to breed the siblings or the fish with the deformity. The popeye is also understandable, but instead of selling it, FIX IT! Treat it, at least try to help the poor fish.

@ThatFishThough I agree. Too many people are breeding deformed fish, and selling them for quite a bit of money.
The seller with the weird females for example has them priced anywhere from 20-40 dollars. Just a few makes sense, but so man of an entire spawn? They're knowingly breeding these and selling them.

Fish getting pop-eye, or the occasional spine issue makes sense...but illness should be treated, and fish with spine issues culled, or given to a home that can provide extra care. NOT sold online for high amounts.

Oh man.. that poor little girls spine!!! Alot of the in breeding in fish reminds me so much of cat and dog inbreeding to make these pets look "cute" and "young" but they are in bad health. :(

That guy with the big flowerhorn-esque lump on his head is so weird. He's still cute though. I'd take him for free.

Honestly, all of these fish should just be given away for free, though a few of them look like kindest thing to do would be to put them down. That girl on the first page with the horrifically deformed spine, for one... I actually ran across that fish while looking for a seller that produces blue mustards so I could buy one in a few months. Now I'm really conflicted about buying from that seller.
