Ok still not understanding. I sees many many many people some from this very forum snap shots of there fish or there fish they wanna sell outta water in there hand for the picture. I actually see it ALOT with online stores that sell cichlids. The person is either holding the fish outta water or its on a table with a tap measure next to it.

What are you going to say to the person when you contact them just curious?

I forget the website but I remember saying to my wife look how they take pictures to try and sell the fish.

I just think people are too lazy to sit there and try to get a good pic with there camera. I spent almost a hour trying to get a good one of my red tail shark and still have not got what i wanted.

I don't agree with it either...but when fish are caught and fisherman take pics with the hooks in their mouths and so on and so forth...I don't see much difference. I'm sure the fish are scared and this causes stress. But maybe the picture taker doesn't get it, lack of understanding perhaps. This is an opportunity to educate, not to put down.
