What Do You Do With Bulldogs/Deformed Plecos?

Post by GlockFu »

With all this talk about bulldog and deformed L046...

To all of you breeders out there, what do you do with them? Do you actually cull them, do you just raise them, sell them, give them away??? What do you do with yours?

Despite my belief that this condition is not genetic, I would never sell one unless a buyer was completely aware of the condition and the implications. I have, in the past, donated them to folks trying to research the condition. Otherwise I keep them for myself.

Out of somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 fry over the years, I have seen maybe five snubbers. I have only one now out of about 45-50 F1s.
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.
