i got all these fish minus the con from an independant fish breeder that was breeding these from his home with his mom and was ending his career as his mom passed and was moving back to hawaii and couldnt bring his remaining fish.i bought his personal tank and some of its inhabitants.
cons are notorious for breeding in captivity so why is it likely they are wc? cons go a dime a dozen as people keep a pair and have more offspring than they can handle and fish stores are bombarded with free cb cons so it is unnecessary to catch em at this point.most fish are wc and which is why i havent fully stocked this tank yet cause the way i feel about that. if it so happens i was lied to that he didnt breed em so be it.i have some wc that i didnt agree with and theres no way to prove either way to settle my mind.as far as i know these fish were bred by a mother and son who loved fish and breeding them.if the parents were wc so be it.
if you are trying to prove im wrong or a hypocrite i have been wrong many times and i also have been a hypocrite.
its in our nature,you learn from being wrong and at some point we will all contradict ourselves.that said im getting tired of looking at a bare tank and will eventually breakdown and buy some wc fish and wc fish in a fish store to me isnt as bad as netting my own and bringing em home..
i wouldnt go out and catch some herp,bird,fish,mammal myself and bring it home to keep as a pet unless it was injured.
for all of you that feel its ok catch your own pet friends go ahead im noone of consequence and its just my opinion and noones opinion matters except your own.
i shouldve kept my mouth shut on that as i know how people react to the subject.flame war.
thanks for bringing that up though tom.glad to see another fish lover on this site.
WC ancestors are fine and sit in the middle ground with the ops reasoning.
if a wc fish in a fish store had babies you know i would be all over them.
if anyone has any questions pertaining to the wc and cb topic pm me and lets get back to what this thread was actually about
