Some questions about breeding

I would like to breed bettas on the side sometime in the future. It's a prospect that really interests me. So I have some questions based on your experiences:

1) Do you breed for what's in style, or for what you like?

2) On average, about how many fry are hatched and how many die off early after hatching? Assuming no disasters like disease or fungus, or unusual circumstances like monster huge spawns.

3) What do you do with undesirable offspring?

4) How do you cull? Do you euthanize or feed them to another fish?

What I like most.

2) On average, about how many fry are hatched and how many die off early after hatching? Assuming no disasters like disease or fungus, or unusual circumstances like monster huge spawns.
Depends. Hatch rate is maybe around 700 + (never counted recent spawns). Fry start dieing when they begin to compete for food. On average 100 - 300 survive. Some weaker spawns, less than 50.

3) What do you do with undesirable offspring?
Give away or cull

4) How do you cull? Do you euthanize or feed them to another fish?
Use them as feeders.
