Okay okay! You got me! I should have put 2.02 lbs LOL! Actually I immediately jumped online after I saw your post to check it out, and I stand corrected. I never bothered to research this fish (oops) once it left my house. When I returned it to the LFS, the owner said qoute: "Didn't work out hu? I tried to tell your husband these fish are beautiful but grow into monsters up to 200lbs. Not a good community fish".:end-qoute
Sorry guys for posting incorrect info! I will never let it happen again!

I'm right there with Mab2000, Dwarf Gouramis are about my least favorite. They are normally peaceful, but sometimes can get very unpredictable. On top of this, it is next to impossible to find good stock these days. You may buy them, then a week or up to several months later the fish just randomly dies. Awful stock, wouldn't buy any until this whole thing clears up.

Any fish that has been modified with dyes to "look cool". This includes glofish, tattooed mollies, and tutti frutti frogs.
AND upon visiting my lfs yesterday, I saw what they called a "jelly bean parrot". They had died a parrot bright glowing pink. It's awful, and ugly too.

I'm with y'all too. I despise fish that have been deformed in a way that really harms them. Granted, Bettas have been selectively bred to give us beautiful flowing fins, this doesn't impair them like a Ballon Molly. I just despise seeing tatooed and died fish.

I did not even now they dyed fish for the longest time. One time my LFS sold me 3 fruit tetras for .99 cents. I thought this was a good deal. When I got back home I did some research and found out what they had to do to look like that. I took them back.
