      so with everybody in the MLB doing it I recently heard that they make steroids for fish. I recieved this information from a very knowledgeable and trusted source that is known to joke around a bit. Has anyone else heard of this and is it bad for your fish...

      naw dude i got a firemoth that hangs with my dovii and devils because of the stuff. i bought him injected from a friend, and the thing is developing a serious nuchal hump. he has some serious color as well and always seems to be in spawning mode. he is pushing a good 8" now and has bred with my female festae and killed my big red tiger mota. he is definitely thick. you can see muscles bulging from his caudal and pectoral areas. youd swear it was a flower horn but nope. just an average everyday firemouth pumped on loads of testosterone. mean azz fish. ...jk...haha

      I believe fish steroids were intended for intense growth as a food source. Such as Tilapias on a fish farm.

      It is the same practice KFC uses with their 6 winged chickens.

      I don't think it is used in the ornamental fish trade, I would imagine there are restrictions.

      does any one know where to get some? I am interested in gettin some for my flowerhorn his hump is sooo small. what are the steroids supposed to do to the fish? make them more agressive? if they enhance growth I would definately be intersted but this is the first time I ever heard about steroid in fish. I heard of people putting silicone in the hump of flowerhorns but thats about it.
