Hello all!
I'm a newbie (hope i did this posting right).
I have not bred anything yet but going to try soon. So my questions are,
what do you do with all these fries? Do you let them grow and breed them? If
so, isn't this inbreeding? Isn't  inbreeding reduces the quality of a
species? Is is safe to buy a male and female fish at the same time at a LFS
and breed them? What are the chances that the male and the female fish are
siblings? I don't want to breed  fish that are siblings...so if anyone has
info please enlighten me.
Sorry for many questions but they've been hunting me for quite some time
