This is a hotly debated topic. The most likely explanation I have come across is that it is caused when the newborns try to break the egg shell and can't do so easily and dad is too new to assist that this causes snubbing. However, folks will argue its genetic, its diet, its water quality or is caused from small fry being pressed agains flat backed caves.
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.

My fish will soon have snub nose if they don't start breeding again and it won't be genetic. Come on fish get things moving again, or I will get in there and show whose the Daddy.
