+1. Pointless, antithetical to what fishkeeping is supposed to be.Honestly, what’s the point of this video? It’s just animal cruelty. Improper mix of cichlids, in a too-small tank, fought for sport and views on YouTube. That crap doesn’t belong in this hobby.
I don't want to get into a thing about all the complexities of man's relationship with animals and I don't have a problem with keeping aggressive fish in proper circumstances, they can be beautiful and have interesting behavior. I'm directing this at the video and the filmer of the video, not participants in this thread, so let's not get into a thing about it-- But:
There are extremes on both sides of animal rights in my view, and I'm not one who thinks it's my right and duty to police everyone elses' treatment of animals, but there are times when Mark Twain's observation is an apt one: "I have been studying the traits and dispositions of the "lower animals" (so called) and contrasting them with the traits and dispositions of man. I find the result humiliating to me."
Intentionally putting fish into circumstances like fighting dogs and allowing one to tear another apart just for entertainment qualifies imo.
