Thanks! I have actually read a ton of these, but it's always good to read another one.

I really do not want to "argue". I just want to ask a question.

Why has IBC no longer allow for VT showings?

There is a reason why the VT are the main betta found in the petstores, but the true reason has yet to be posted here. Go to the local pet store and ask them why.

I leave my male with the spawn long after they are free swimming. If they are in a loarge tank, he will cull just the deformed weak fry. If he is in a smaller tank with several (few hundred or so) fry, he may cull some healthy ones because he will think there is not enough food/space for all those young. But I personally like to leave it up to Dad. He knows way more about what is going on with those fry then I can possibly know.

Sounds great, I am gonna feed him enough so that he could differ parenting from hunger. :)

That's my plan as well, leave my HM with the fry until they are moved to the larger growout. I like the lower number of adults, along with the healthiest I can get out of the spawn.

I know some people think it's inhumane, and I won't argue with their methods, this is just the method I think will work best for me.

Visja, leaving the male with the fry is IMO the most humane way to cull. Also the most risky however.

I'm with you on that, Matts. I'll keep a close eye on the male of course,but at least they are being culled young enough not to really register, unlike...dropping them in clove oil or islce water or the like
