Thanks! Scotty I'm not really sure. They had him mislabeled. He was $2. So we scooped him up.

sometimes you can get the long fin GBR. in fact the breeders have been breeding the long fins for some time now.

good deal, the cheapest i was able to get, without mislabeling, was $2.50 from Petsmart when they had a sale. it's not everyday, just need the patience to wait for the sale.

Sorry to side track this thread. Do they breed Bolivian rams with the long fins? That could explain my pair

now, the long fin pair of bolivian might have occurred naturally without people manipulating their genetic diversity. the only long fins i have seen and read about are the GBR. they also have the gold face electric blue rams as the result of genetic manipulation. with that been said, it wouldn't surprise me if the pair you have are the "experimental samples" as well because nowadays, they even have "long/lace fin oscars". you could only imagine my shock when i saw them in the store

It's okay! My husband wants another one. We are fascinated by him. He's very vain. He loves for you to see him. When we get home he shows off & I swear he poses for pictures. If your sitting on the couch by the tank he will come to that side & swim back & forth until you look at him. We got a dwarf gourami but he's a little shy. I any get a good picture of him. My son named him Sasquatch but he can't say it so we call him squat. Lol.
