That sucks man, I'm not sure what would cause so many deformities..how big are they so far? It might sound a bit harsh, but you could let them get eaten and hope for a better group next time.

i have already taken that step...i moved all the fry into a breeder net and i counted 30 and i have put 10 healthy 1ns in the big tank coz there big enough...making it 40 and iv added 9 smaller 1nz...around 3/4 of a cm they have bent backs and today 3 have gone wich to me is awful but because im planning on breeding i just carnt have those fry reaching adulthood.... :):):)
