Brad, why would you lie like this? I suppose the photo of "your" house is fake too. Nice job.
If I am wrong however, then my apologies. That is, if you are the genuine owner of the photo of the fish posted on this website paradise blue, then disregard my comment. But something tells me you're not exactly, lol.
P.S. To be more exact, the photo appears under an option "Ribbon Reef"
Mike, thanks, but the credit doesn't go to me! It was someone else who exposed the lie. I cannot remember the screen name, something beginning with "G", I think George, or something like this. But it seems the person removed the post. It was him that provided the website. I simply browsed the website and indeed found exactly the same picture under the option "Ribbon Reef".
Brad, please do not get so angry. I am not really accusing you of anything. Only I don't think you can really deny that the photo isn't yours. What would be the chances of someone finding on the Internet exactly the same picture that you have posted? I think that would be extremely unlikely. So the truth is obvious. Besides, how come the fish's position, the resolution of the picture, and even the frames, are EXACTLY the same as on the picture from the website? You must be thinking we're all very dumb not to notice all of this.
I am not trying to offend you Brad. I am sorry if you think I am. I am simply stating the facts.
My point is, the people on FishLore are good and honest people. They'd help you with anything if you needed any information on fish, fish maintenance, fish diseases, setting up the tank, etc ... . Therefore it's not nice to lie like this. By lying to people who are always there to help you, you're showing disrespect. And that is rude, really.
But, maybe, somehow, I am wrong. If I am Brad, then I greatly apologize. I suppose that if the fish is yours then it wouldn't be a problem for you to take a picture of it again and post it for us, so that we all know that we are wrong and that we unjustly accused you. Please post a different picture of the same fish. Thank you.
P.S. I'd love to see the tank that is home to this beautiful fish of yours. Please post the picture too !!! It must be an amazing view, judging by the fish alone. Can't wait !
Brad, it's OK! Don't worry about "fitting in". Nobody would even want to do something like this on this website! Believe me, the people here are very nice and they will help you if you have any concerns. As long as you're honest - and you just showed us that you are (thank you) - everything will be fine So welcome back We don't want you to feel uncomfortable or unwelcome here! You're welcome to ask questions and post comments, as anybody else in here. The point is to always learn. Have fun on FishLore !!!
Yeah, like all I have is a 10 gallon with a few fish, and I'm just a beginner, while some people like Dino, Gunnie, and many more have beautiful tanks with colorful fish, but I know I fit in, because people on FishLore . . . well . . . they are cool! ;D
