I was rendering to signs of sbd caused by poor water quality. I haven't seen him do it for the last hour. He also has no trouble at all swimming. And doesn't float to the top.

Ive seen swb up close. This is not it. Some male betta just like to lay sideways at times especially when in new enviroment or container. No idea why. Swb is much more pronounced than this and swb cant just be turned off the way these guys do. Archie has done it ever since Ive had him almost a year. Banana and Archie are nor closely related for genetics to play a role.

I had a female with sbd who swam fine but when she stopped she tilted to her side. If you want to breed him then go ahead, but I am warning you that there is a fair chance that you will end up with a lot of fry that have sbd and will be impossible to sell. With his sbd and weird pectoral fin, I would say that Banana is inappropriate for breeding.

Well I had a bacteria in one tank so Im tearing all breed tanks down disinfecting and adding small amount of AQ salt along with slightly changing my water chemistry to lower gh/kh/ph to make it easier to keep eggs in top shape for hatching. All are being reconditioned now for another try this week.

Well the pectoral fin is an injury so it will not be genetic. But the sbd I cannot be so sure of. I will give him the week and if I notice anything odd during conditioning with the "sbd" I will rethink about breeding him

I'm assuming this as another member said theirs was injured with this and I don't believe this is something that would be genetics. I am not trying to start a fight. I'm just storing my opinions and you do know more that me so I respect your knowledge. But I am only using my own knowledge.

If it is genetic and there may be a couple in this spawn that have a slight angle difference like Banana and Elvis all my fry will have possibility to pass it on including Spike. It may well appear in all spawns from this group at roughly a 3% rate. No reason not to spawn these fish imo.

Yes, all of the fish would carry the gene, but there would definatly be a higher percentage of the deformaty in the fry if you use a parent with it.

Mahsfish- Im not trying to start a fight either. I just want to inform you of the risks in spawning him. Thank you for listening!

I will definetly take your advice into consideration. If this behavior continues and is severe than most likely will not breed him. If not I will atempt at breeding him. And if mine or LGs spawn shows that this is a genetic trait then I will hauls breeding with banana. Thank you
