i dont see any reason to cull the fish if it has no sickness or injury. it could just remain as a pet not to be bred. fish without ventrals seem to survive well enough given a chance and if they display no issues from 2 less fins.

Well that is true they can live healthy lives but I dont have room for pets... Im trying to run a breeding program if I kept every fry not able to be used for breeding I would be over run, and I need his 30 gallon that he was in all alone for the next batch of fry ready for the grow out tank.

I dont usually have a problem culling due to deformitys etc.. Its just I did get a lil attached to him or her because I have never had a lone fry to raise its usually a batch so you dont individualize. My boyfriend named it nemo the sole survivor.

I moved it to my soriety tank if he or she survives in there then i will brake my own rule and keep it as a pet

If you decide to cull him/her, i would not mind paying for shipping to have you send it over to me as I seem to have a good record of raising baby bettas (3 and counting) .

thats a logical reason though the occasional execption wont hurt. i hope he survives or finds a good home (if you decide to sell/ship the fish.) raising a fish without ventrals would be interesting in the future given i had a spot but spare room for bettas is hard to comeby for me also.

i can understand your sentiment of having limited space for hobbies or fish breeding. i love plants and have many of them but i cant go and buy every single one of them either. same goes for plant clippings on my fast growing plants.
