Breeders stock illnesses

  • Has anyone noticed that in some stores the breeders appear to be running low on stock on common (and some uncommon) species now? I also notice that there are a ton of fish that seem to be pretty sick or have some type of breeding deformation which seems like it appears that something is happening upstream. Has anyone else noticed this or is it low key just me?

  • I’ve noticed since the pandemic that a lot of the common fish stores tend to now have breeders who have more genetic issues, or they are seemingly coming in with more illnesses than before (or normal). I’m not sure if this is due to them having to hold the fish longer and therefore overstocking the tanks before shipment, or if something else is going on.
