Default cross breeding???



Because of the abnormalties the fish my have would cause them discomfort?
Cary


maybe not discomfort, but deformities, like blood parrots, they can't close
their mouths... Flowerhorns are ugly beasts with a huge ugly lump on their
heads, bigger than the lumbhead cichlids...

go read this...

I don't like those Flowerhorns, but that hump is no bigger
than on any mature Central American cichlid.

ive got an unidentified african that i got in a bulk deal. i have a 155
gallon bowfront. i think it may even be a southamerican im not too sure

buy
any way it has recently decided to inhabit one of my coconut shells as a
breeding ground. i found this out by being attacked by it while

rearanging
a
fuilter output tube it has attacked me a few times since it doesent draw
blood but is extreemly protective. what i was wondering is is there any
chance that males of the same lake may be able to fertilize different
species ? ive never encountetred this info anywhere else so im guessing

the
answer will be a stong no

any input will be helpfull thanks people!


Some species of cichlid will hybridize. This is where Flowerhorns and

Blood
Parrots come from. The results are horrible, malformed beasts whose
miserable, disabled existence serves only to pollute the bloodlines of

real
cichlids. So yes, it is possible, but IMHO any offspring should be culled
immediately.

What species made the Parrot? Is this done regularly to make this hybrid?

The original producers of the parrot cichlid have never, as far as I know,
put forward the exact origin of these fish. Consensus seems to be that they
originated with a severumXcitrinellus cross. Not sure if the crossing
continues, as some of the parrots are fertile, so maybe now they are just
bred to each other.
LOTS of cichlids will hybridize. Personally,in addition to the fact that I
just don't agree with hybridizing and distributing the offspring, I see
nothing in the flowerhorn that is better than a trimac, and certainly
nothing in the parrot cichlid that is more desirable than a severum or red
devil.

You'd be surprised... I've seen some grotesque ones... They're breeding to
enhance the size of the hump these days.

Some hybrids will cichlids. This is Flower horns and blood parrot comes from. The result is terrible, deformed animals miserable, and people with disabilities exist only to the true origin pollution cichlids. So, yes, it is possible, but with respect to any future generations should be culled immediately.

There are many types of Koi today. There are even some hybrids have led to different varieties of Koi.here are also some koi types that were created out of crossbreeding different koi varieties and other common koi carp. This is an example of butterfly koi. This butterfly has long comet goldfish fin koi.
