I have about thirty fry in a ten gallon tank.
They all are verious sizes and ages.
One particular fry I have my eyes on is this very small,
Very pale fry. It looks deformed, It tail is ripped and jagged
It makes a triangle shape. He is super small compared to the others.
he has a very tough time swimming, but he seems perfectly health.
He eats good and he is a tough swimmer. I was going to cull him
but I tought I would give him a chance.

How long will it live or should have I culled him?

I'd leave him-if he lives then he lives, if he dies then he dies no sense not giving him a fighting chance, like any creature deserves

DO NOT KILL HIM, you never know maybe he ends up like nemo, even with his disability he continues to live a happy healthy life.

i agree, give him/her a chance...if its swimming and eating then let nature take its course.

Just realize you'll have to have some place for a defective fish that may not end up very "eye appealing".

If you decide to cull which is necessary in the fish business, just dump him into a cup of ice water.

I hope you can keep him though and good luck, Scott
