    one of my fry had a bent spine when born and now she's grown up a bit it really looks worse, but she gets about well enough. if she had fry herself will they all have bent spines too? or does it not work like that. seems wrong to kill her just cause she looks different but then i don't want a tank full of bent guppies either. help?

    I had a guppy like that, she seemed to have no problems getting around and lived for about a year.

    I'm no genetics expert but I'm sure that parents pass of traits to the young.
