Oh that! haha It's an old saying, best way to describe it is with a online search:

Quote:
Flogging a dead horse (alternatively beating a dead horse in some parts of the Anglophone world) is an idiom that means a particular request or line of conversation is already foreclosed or otherwise resolved, and any attempt to continue it is futile; or that to continue in any endeavour (physical, mental, etc.) is a waste of time as the outcome is already decided.

Yeah I've stopped posting breeding logs but it's for me to decide how and when to breed certain fish, and aim for what I want to aim to. It doesn't matter if I "do something wrong" in eyes of others, everyone does their own thing their own way - whichever way they feel is best.

If I have to cull, I try culling them when they start showing certain signs of problems. Such as one fry had a bent spine, and couldn't swim very well. She/he just got fed to an aggressive fish.... I'm actually finding it harder to find a good male who'll 1. breed and 2. take care of the fry and 3. produce good fry.

How does power feeding work?? I've seen 3 month old fish look like 6 month old fish, colorful and all, but most spawns from home breeders I've seen are just getting colors, or still have stripes.

Breeding have 3 main rule to follow by
Water quality
Genetic
Food
Will there more
Temp/light also play a role to
Feed them fatty food with high protein.(wormy food)
Temp around 78-80 so the fry stay active
12-14 of light
the down fall is that the fin won't b as long.
Build a fatty line under anal fin.

Only problem I find is my male won't breed he prefers swimming with the female (all 3 tried females were completely vertical with submission stripes, fat with eggs etc) so I don't have to worry about culling yet lol.
