What kind of birdie do you have? :) and I am glad that my dog cant fly lol

Is starvation an acceptable cull method?

For me its not starvation its reducing feeding ( instead of 4 feedings they get 2) so that only the stronger fry will search out the food. I also feed in the same spot everyday so I then move the food to a different location. I consider it a more natural method just like feeding fry to larger fish. In the wild only the strongest make it to the food. It still leaves me with small fry but thats alright with me sense they obviously were strong enough to get the food.

They hatched the 5/3/12 and thank you they are growing like mad it helps that it is a small spawn too maybe about 30. But I am going to breed the pair again if these turn out nice.

Do they by any chance have giant background? Thus far my regulars has never grown that fast but giant descendents can grow 1/2 cm in a few days and 1 cm in a week. The fastest I can grow regular bettas is 1cm in a month.

Still waiting for pictures ..... :)
