    Breeding in a fry-only tank

    i am thinking of cutting bottoms off a plastic breeder. Place it in the 10 gallon fry-only tank. Breed in the breeder and let the fry fall into the tank. I’ve searched for discussion of this practice. Why is this not a reasonable approach?

I obviously don't want these to mature and continue breeding to pass on any defect, but I can't find anything online about what the best option is to kull them off. What do people tend to do...

    Fish cut in half but seems fine??

    Hi all! I have a group of baby honduran red points that are growing up. Earlier this month the smallest of them showed a lot of damage to her tail, it was basically gone, so I removed her from her siblings into my least aggressive tank. Never saw her again and I believe she died and was eaten...

    Hello, I am having a little complication with about several of my female guppies. They just won't drop their fry. They are huge and look as if they are balloons on the verge of popping.

    Question on "Culling"

    I'm not quite sure how to put this really? I have guppies, and of course, WAY too many fry! However, I am attempting to grow them out, in multiple tanks, separating sex, feeding properly, correct water quality parameters (0/0/10), etc., so I can trade them for a small bit of store credit. I...
