    I should have known you would be the blunt one so what else do you see besides the yamabuki? How on gods green earth do you learn to cull with fry like this

    I would cull the deformed for now , then in another month or two give them another look . If I had plenty of space for them , I would cull the deformed and then cull them in the spring . The bigger they get the easier they will be to cull . At least for me , bigger they are the easier it is .

    I have the room I just do not want to feed cull fish for to long and I want the space for the others to grow as much as they can. I think most breeder start culling when they are very young

    First tell me it was an accident....noone breeds aka bekko to anytbhing...you will have everything....
    EVERYTHING
    Since you ARE NOT going to every do a breeding with Aka Bekkos ever again toss the deformed ones and ones with no color and set this spawn up to be big in April whem the Season for pond fish starts....sell em low and watch em go....
    Do not keep any of them....not one. You aren't going to learn anything from this cross that you won't learn by seeing them in the Spring.

    It was, I did not plan this spawn, it just happened in my main pond. The temps around her have been crazy and they spawned again in my pond resulting in these fry. Also they spawned in my mud pond and now I have a pond full of mutts there to I guess. Sure thing I will sell em low and watch em go.


    Next spring I will have type ot type spawns Will be spawning two Momotaro Showa and two Momotaro Kohaku, if all goes well. How does 6 buck a piece at 6 inches sound?

    The mutts with no color I will cull and thanks Luke.

    Patterns will show better in a couple of weeks. For now, I would at least keep ones that look like this...
