Crossbreeding is generally frowned upon in the hobby. Results of this practice often result in genetically weak fish,unpredictable behaivors,deformities,and most often a bunch of babies that you can't GIVE away.
At this point,,one must decide whether to euthanize the fry, or set up numerous tanks to hold them, or offer them as feeder's which are relatively poor nutrition wise for larger fish with so many excellent prepared foods on the market being much better from nutritional stand point.
