How about inbreeding?


New Member
Hi all.
Today my young Api. panduro pairs spawn some eggs withn their shelter.
However, I have worried about somthing wrong because they are sibling.
I wonder how wrong the inbreeding is ?
Thank you.

I personally wouldn't worry about inbreeding unless I saw some genetic defects in the offspring. Most of the domestic color strains are inbred.
