Generally speaking. The breeder jars the ones they think will be most promising and the ones that are most aggressive (sometimes those are one in the same). The females and non-aggressive males are left in the grow out.

Yeah the best ones I have jarred right now I jarred because they were showing a bit of black in their caudals...Glad I saw that. ;P

I jarred them earlier than usual because I want to show and I can't have nipped fins. I also jar females for the same reason, showing.

That male looks nice Beat. I wonder if his topline will improve as he grows out a bit.

I love that last male you posted. He's going to be very nice when he's done growing.

Yeah he a bit of a "DT dip" but everything else is fine....Straight spine, and a great dorsal...

Here's one of the DT's I have jarred...He's my #2 pick from the DT's...I'll think about it, but I don't think he's going anywhere...

And also the "female" with the white streak in the caudal might be a male...S/he blew a huge nest today and is acting very much like a male...S/he might be one I let go if it is a male....

Well that makes sense! Now I see why many show breeders separate fry so early. It's for show perpose, ao they don't have the chance to start getting agitated and start on their aggression stage.
