    Host of this RG is wierd ..

    yes I agree that there is something weird here. You must have great eyesight because I can barely see the galaxy in the SDSS image. If this is indeed a high redshift AGN, then you would expect the host to be a red dead elliptical. As far as I can tell, that galaxy is not red!
