I've always been told with mammals, in-breeding is "wrong" but line-breeding can be acceptable if done properly. There is a difference between the two. Still kinda turns the tummy if you ask me lol

I agree- putting this perception on fish made me think it was horrible at first too.. But I guess fish are just different, as I'm sure are insects, crustaceans, stuff like that.
I watched a show where a lady was breeding her champ. mastiff (like top in America) to his daughter, and she went through soo many tests and precautions about it. I was kinda grossed out haha.
Anyways, very off topic, but not in a sense. That guy will have very little progress if he never inbreeds fish, I believe. Not that he knows what progress is.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

...seriously? This man needs a serious lesson in internet etiquette. Not to mention, calling yourself the greatest breeder in the world is ignorant. Especially since his fish don't even look that impressive. You did the right, mature thing Vamp. Especially for a 15 year old...I had no idea you were that young! Well, by young I guess I mean that makes us the same age. XD Wish all teenage boys had the maturity you do. Most of the people I know (likely myself included...) would have had some words for that man after a response like that!
