its all about experience.
I hear its good to breed a ct to a regular female, ct x vt = a mix of both ct and vt, and yes you will still get afew deformities but not as high. my goal in the far future is this : Name:  072.jpg

CT x CT will NOT breed deformities.
I think you're thinking of DT x DT...

I've bred a CT line and had few, if any, deforms in my fry.

Most likely the culprits are the shrimp eating the fry. They're scavengers, but they'll try to eat anything that they can fit into their mouths.
It also might be the set-up not being ideal.

Facts and opinions are complete opposite. Before giving out information, it's best to have the correct info to tell. This is how the misleading care about bettas came to be. ;)

DoberMom- It's ok. :) We all have our moments, lol. I thought someone would have mentioned the shrimp to you by now... ah well. I haven't been on this forum in months!
Is the temp. set alright?
Another factor might be that when doing water changes... if you add the new water in too quickly, I found out that a lot of my fry died. They can't acclimate to the water quick enough.

Oh wow, didn't think water changed could kill them. I've finally netted my shrimp and tonight they will be off to their new temporary home in my bf's 10 gal. I'm kinda mad at them, haha. Anyway, I've actually started checking out some of the logs that are being posted and learning about how to do water changes. I haven't touched their water yet for fear of sucking them up and killing them. I really want them to survive. I think I will be using the airstone method. Seems to make the most sense.

Sounds good! 82*F is ideal but 80* is also good.
Yeah it takes a lot of time to do water changes! haha. Usually took me an hour to two hours a day (I'd remove a good 80% of their water each day). Lack of water changes will stunt or slow down growth, so the more frequently you do them, the bigger and healthier they'll grow to be! ^__^

Breeders aren't going to agree on everything. I wonder if there are any breeders that have ever had 100% perfect spawns with absolutely no deformities at all.
