    When you're breeding guppies of whatever livebearers, you need to cull periodically. At least, if you'd like to keep the best specimens with the right traits in the strains you've got in order to keep the quailty high. And overhere at my place, it's not any different...
    I always see it as a relaxing moment.

    And all the specimens that just don't meet up the characteristics of the strain sufficiently, will end up in my mutt tank. Unless, someone is asking me to put them aside for them, I'll put them in an extra tank untill that person will pick them up. There are a lot of people that don't mind having guppies that have been culled from the better ones.

    That looks like a very time consuming task but a necessary one

    Doesn't have to be a real time consumer. To me this is just a routine job.
