Should I cull?

Ok, wanted to know, because I have 3 spawns growing up right now, 2 steel blue and red spawns, and a red and black x light red spawn (all spawns are 2 weeks old and under) - I was wondering if I saw some rosetails early on if I should just cull them? or let them grow out? Wanted to know if anyone would want a rosetail or not? I will probably have rosetails in 2 of my 3 spawns, as one spawn consists of only 1 fry, and no matter what he or she is I will be keeping it for myself :)

I know alot of people on here want show quality, but I know we all love every betta, and if someone was wanting a cheap or free pet quality betta would they mind if it was a rosetail or feather tail? I personally have owned several feather tails (never spawned them) and they are still beautiful, so it may be hard to cull these guys. Of course the ones with deformities will naturally be culled, I wouldnt want to give anyone a deformed fish.

IMO rose/feather tails are gorgeous. Problem is, my interest is breeding and have had bad experience breeding them. I will breed a self made rose, but not a bought one. Nevertheless, they make great pets.

I say don't cull them - unless they show deformities. A lot of people like them and may pay top $ for them.
Good luck.

People like rosetails for pets, not everyone breeds.

Other people may disagree but I feel that as long as they are able to swim and eat normally then there is no reason to cull them. If they're in any pain or seem to be suffering then I'd cull.

Yes, I would agree that you not cull them unless they show some health issue. You can offer them to non-breeders to enjoy.

I would love a rosetail if I could get one. Or a feathertail. They are beautiful and for people who have no intention of breeding they make wonderful pets. If you still want to give one away, I'll take one! I don't want to breed anything, just love betta. :) But you could probably sell them on AB very easily. I'm with the others. Don't cull unless they're in obvious distress.
