 I don't think it's an extremely unattractive fish. In fact, some variants
 are smaller and very colorful. If you want to keep it forvere, you can. If
 you want to eat it, it's delicious.

animal in question would definitely be "unhappy" if you tried to stunt it... 
by way of keeping it in a small container, metabolite build-up, mis-feeding...
