Royal, this is not the place. And I will only cull fish that have a life altering deformity, I'm a bit soft when it comes to that. Why not just give it a second chance at the Lfs Sena?

A bent spine IS a deformity. To keep DT a strong line you absolutely positively MUST ensure only the BEST fry survive. Now, if there are mitten tails they will be given to people on here as only pets, but deformities no. Some person will probably say "hey! A doubletail! I should breed him." Not only disappoints the owner when all the fry die, but when the betta dies, and would not benefit the DT line at all. It would make it worse. This fry has a short body, hence the bent spine. Whose to say he/she won't suddenly die?

I was soft with Janey's last spawn. I should have culled way over half. And only the strongest really did survive. And I've learned not to be soft. I can't keep every deformed fry.... Live threatening or not. DT by itself is a deformity, and letting a deformed fry go is just asking for trouble.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

I agree with Sena, leaving deformed fry is just asking for trouble.

Especially on a weaker tail type.

Also take note that the way his/her spine is, it's actually pressing against an organ. Since I can see that (being pretty pale and still growing) I have all theirs reason to cull. There could be so many difficulties with him - swim bladder disorder, ruptured organ(s), unable to breathe properly, etc.

Got the large order of IAL today (I shall place some in the sorority tank!!) and I got a "gift"... A seed!! With instructions on how to plant it and all. ;D I'll plant it when I can in a large pot... Then, whoever wants the tiny tree can use it as an ornamental tree or whatnot since I can't take it with me.
