What do you all do with the surviving babies? :)

I was just wondering..On average, how many fry survive to the point where they're old enough to be kept as pets? Also, what do you breeders do with them once they're at that stage? =) I assumed you may sell them to pet stores, or give them away to responsible friends/family, but I'm not 100% sure. In the future, I may breed my bettas and I'd like to secure a happy home for the babies, as I'm sure I can't keep them all!

I think most keep them or give them to friends and family. I don't think chain stores like Petsmart or Petco will take them.

Well, I plan on selling my fry online. Aquabid, people on this forum...

I also have a small family run pet shop near me that I'm gonna call and see if they want a few babies.

Sometimes the small, privately owned petstores will take them.

The fry will be VTs because the veiltail trait is dominant.

So DT is recessive? Is it possible for some of them to be DTs if Angel carries a DT gene?
