And that is okay, when you have the resources, time, and money. He has those things I don't. I can't afford to cull these two fry when it might be $30 out the window. Francis is a great breeder, with bloodlines that strong you expect more than a pet quality fish. Why feed house and care for something that he won't get anything from? See that is his thinking. He doesn't know what it is like to be in our position, he was lucky enough to start out with high quality imports. He has of course since made the line WAY better stronger. He puts so much work into these fish you just can't afford to keep all the ones that won't be anything special. So yes I understand his culling thing but he hasn't told me to destroy the fry and he is well aware of what has happened.
