    If you get rid of these fish please make sure that whomever obtains them knows they are hybrids. Hybridyzing is just something that I cannot wrap my head around.

    It wasn't something I planned on doing just happened let alone thought could happen but definitely couldn't just pawn them off as just one or the other to who ever gets them ill definitely inform them

    I don't think that there is anything wrong with hybrids. It's just what people DO with these hybrids that bothers me. Some of the most amazing animals are hybrids (both visually and commercially; think mules), but when you take something You've bred and sell/give it away as a pure this or that you start propagating a poor standard for the hobby, and endanger the genetic integrity of the breed.

    I bought "pure" Endlers on aquabid and found out they were likely hybrids -.-;
    Guy I know paid a few thousand dollars for a "star breeder" German Shepard pair and they ended up being mutts that just looked like Shepards. The paper work on them was forged or something. Similar situation, but not exactly a great example.... lol.

    Even still, they were excellent dogs. Big, loud, lap-dogs scared of there own shadows XD
