    Please don't cull at this stage- you cant see them properly. You CAN remove any clearly deformed fry.
    Keep feeding and changing 50% water daily and talk to us again in 2 weeks.

    Pictures of the parents would help. But as Amy said, don't cull yet, just fish out the clearly deformed ones, like crooked backs or tails.

    They have articles on the homepage of this forum... I would like to see the parents though.

    Go to Home> Go to top left corner and click on articles> Look through the list of articles, and after all of that hard work you will find an article on oranda rearing. I use tap water and dechlor just fine.. Bottled water is a waste of money.

    You can't cull for high or low riding tails until they are a few months old.
