Swim bladder. Will it be genetic?

What happens if I breed a male with SBD? will the fries be affected?

I'm not 100% certain on this but I want to say no its not genetic, I think a lot of swim bladder issues come from improper development as the result of bad care after the wiggler stage.

I could be completely wrong on this though. OldFishlady or maybe Floridabettas might be better informed on this question.

As far as I know it is not genetic or can be passed to the offspring, however, it could be other things that caused the swim bladder issue that caused the male to be symptomatic.

I would not recommend breeding this male however, you should only breed healthy fish.
