Yeah. But this is the same argument used for pet store/ puppy mill puppies. It's a flawed argument. By buying the fish you create a need for more. Continuing the process.
I have issue with genetically modified animals. I buy cows and pigs for consumption from people that raised them. I think we should respect nature and what IT created. Not try to make it prettier for prettier sake.
I got into the hobby for the beauty of the fish in its natural state. Granted, keeping fish in a tank is unnatural, so a bit of hypocrisy. But I think if we love fish, we should love what they naturally bring to the table. There are sooooo many colorful fish out there. Why use science??? Nature gave us what we want. Respect that.
