so, what is the appropriate way to cull, if you do? :/ I want to breed also but I cannot have hundreds of babies...... I don't really want to cull them though.
I think taking the father out and putting a different fish in, like a cory or a guppy, is one way. Something that eats fry. Natural elimination too, probably, where the weak don't survive because they don't get enough food. I don't know, really.
I know I've heard about people using the clove oil method for culling, or putting the culls into other tanks to be eaten.
I think the biggest issue with breeding pet store fish is you don't really know what you'll get, but if you're not trying to create a specific type of line then I don't think it's that big of a deal. some AB fish you don't get much more info than you do petstore fish anyways, lol
