Really?? Because Byron and others make QUITE a big deal about keeping fish water that is similar to their natural habitat. That's the first thing many people here ask when someone wants stocking help - "we can't help you till you tell us your water chemistry..."
I think it's safe for you to definitively say that the tank raised fish have never lived in wild rivers. Are you suggesting that the fish forget how to swim in such a setting? Or are today's fish just too lazy? Besides, even the likes of my ridiculous, unnecessary, waste of money (did I forget something?) filtration systems don't even come close to a river setting.
