In Response To: Re: Elaboration.... (Nick)
I have an unfortunate but necessary question. How do you destroy the birth-defected ones? Is there a humane way? I've heard about freezing as being humane. Or do you - ahem- do it nature's way and feed them to other fish?
I have to know this because my discus may start breeding soon - they are showing the signs - and I don't want to raise fish that wouldn't make it in the wild (weaklings and defects). But I don't want to - uh - get rid of the defects in an inappropriate way, either.
When I had swordtails, the problem solved itself - those that weren't tough enough, got eaten by the angelfish. I have no problem with this "natural" type of solution, if that is what one is supposed to do.
