I have more info, pictures, and a short video clip on my web page:

I just went about learning how to cull the hard way, tried a bunch of different ideas that all proved very labor intensive and slow. Finally tripped over a super simple solution -- a laundry sorter, think it came from Walmart.

The other two tools that work great are a shallow bucket with a bunch of holes, and one of those nifty japanese sorting nets -- I made my own.

Found out the hard way that you need to sort fry every week, or every other week, otherwise the tobies will gobble up tons of their brothers and sisters.

Well I have decided that I don't want to be a breeder:no: We didn't get threw the first tank:eek1: They are small and it is hard work:rolleyes: We culled a fair amount out of the ones we went threw and bought a preform tank and put the keepers in there:rolleyes: Anymore tank,tubs I will need a permit :D:

Wow:eek1: I have no idea at 4 weeks old what to keep since they are so small. We don't have the right gadgets to sort them out so PITA right now.
