The Crucian Carp are like sheep. The sole remaining Perch reminds me of a faithful sheepdog. Standing guard or herding the flock.
I have read that Carp in the presence of predators such as Perch or Pike adapt to their presence by getting a rounder shape. This change can become genetic and passed on to subsequent generations.
Fascinating that this tiny fish could have a generational effect.
Breeding would be fun but I would need to do a lot of reading and research.
