      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I would say carp.

fish change their colors more often than most realize. I almost missed the wiskers on this carp. I want to belive it is a cross of a carp and goldfish but not sure and will never know.

gold fish/ common carp hybrid.

goldfish and common carp hybrids will not have barbels

but in some cases, they have tiny barbels

but common carp and koi hybrids (aka gghost carp) have normal size barbels

small mouth buff is a possibilty, but the body structure and the coloration is more that of a carp/ goldfish hybrid

aaron, you have a carp/koi hybrid, or just a koi if the barbels are normal length. after a few years of being in natural waters, koi will return to their normal color, which is very close to the common carp.

if the barbels are much smaller than normal, you have a carp/ goldfish hybrid.

I don't think they can.

There are different variations of common carp and I am sure this is one of those much like my goldfish looking carp.

they cannot. though carp and buffs look alike, their genetic make up is to different to hybridize
