Tat's mistaken. Compare to koi, fh not space.

Wanna keep something smaller, try guppy or betta.

The fact is, if we dun do tis, fh will only be swee when young. Turn puberty... before pubic appendages even start to show... fh can throw long kang. Is tat wat we want?

To grow old and ugly is one thing... to grow big and ugly is another. We should aim to keep fh tat will grow hitting prime at full size. And when they grow older and turn uglier tat's ok... not young swee grow up ugly.

Grow old ugly ok, not grow up ugly. Dun confuse things.

Koi example, Asagi, let's talk colour only. U can find one with adult colouration at 10 inches not difficult. Those will grow up ugly cos by then their colours would have gone haywire, belly red creeping way above lateral line, purple top turning patchy like stainings here and there.

For fh, the problem way more severe, with so many variables from hybridisation.

The approach to keeping fh must include driving for size and beauty... size with beauty... most beautiful at maximum size... then can we hope fh hobby to survive and thrive better.
