Choclate, there are very many respectable breeders who started with petstore fish. This is not a forum for "high quality only" fish, and it's up to us to provide friendly information to the new breeders and give suggestions. If they want to breed pet store fish we can give advice and friendly warnings, plus point to higher end stores and alternatives to gaurentee them a healthy spawn.

And yet many spawns are resulted from spunky older fish. They already mentioned they are pet store fish, if you do not agree with their methods unsubscribe. Again, we can give them tips and warnings, but cannot and should not control their thoughts, minds, or actions.

We still have to encourage, not discourage. I'm glad this person does take care of their fish!

We all agree on that Choclate. But this is NOT a forum to discourage people from owning, breeding, or rehoming their fish if they see fit. I started out with pet store fish! I've made my way to quality fish. And have over 200 fry from one spawn. We all start somewhere. Don't try to discourage people. Give them advice and let them choose their way and learn first hand

That is why I am reccomending fry food. Sponge Filters allow fry food to grow.

That's true. Sponge filters also help keep the water from forming sludge on the surface
