The egg removing idea is better because it takes a few minuets for the eggs to become fertilized.

Also, limiting the amount of times the pair wraps can reduce the amount of eggs you have.

Good thing I didn't do that with my CT pair because she wasn't releasing eggs at all. Just a note, I'm not gonna sell these ones, I'm gonna try inbreeding and then see what happens.

i would never prematurely end a spawn or kill off eggs. maximizing the number of offspring will allow for better selection of keepers.

Yes, good point. But wouldn't that mean more that you have to cull? I just posted that info about limiting the number of wraps and removing eggs because I found the info on bettatalk and I want people to know that there are other alternatives. Culling is up to the individual breeder.

DQ is right, and I really don't want to have to cull.

I agree and disagree to some extent. If you do not know enough about any animal don't breed them but again you can't expect to know what nature is going to hand you! I do know one thing though I bought a blood fin tetra from a pet store that was shaped like an L, yes a letter L and he lived for about 4 years. If that animal is not in pain and is eating and surviving with no problem so be it. I myself though will not kill anything just because of size or shape ect. We would not do humans that way and all my fish are just like my children. I commend you for letting people know of the things that can go wrong though and leave breeding to the more experienced person.

I agree and in the end it comes down to responsible breeding. Having the knowledge, equipment, supplies, ect to get the job done. Saying that I also believe that bettas should bred to maintain the correct size, shape ect. And to get rid of the deformities and problems. And like iheartmyfishies mentioned earlier if breeders don't do this the quality will surely decrease.
