JMO,
stun discus still will breed, if im not wrong.
The only problem is will they pass down the gene of being stunt ( if there such thing naturally ) to the next generation ?

u're totally right bro kin!

stunted fishes can breed too! i've seen a pair of 3.5 inch brown fishes carrying.. erm.. 80 fries. !!!!!!!!!!!!

and nope, the fries won't be stunted, dont worry.

take care!

from what bro dalelad said, i take it as no.
Stunt was usually due to later state of the fishes after birth due to human fault !?( then again pls correct me if im wrong)

Deform might be by birth. I dont think even both parent perfect, all frys will be perfect. U still get 1, 2 deform.
that what culling is for
though ahh i dont have the heart.

what kin had said is totally right.
when a discus stunts in growth, it usually is a result of either that it had been down with a disease before, or other causes ie. long extended periods without food or proper nutrition.

such circumstances might cause a fault in the ability for the fish to grow. the fish, in most instances, lose the ability to produce growth hormones, or rather, a disability to grow as the organs no longer provide adequate absorbtion of necessary nutrition for the fish to grow. this causes stunting.

the disability for any stunted fish to breed is when its bodily size is unsuitable for breeding, otherwise, the fish would still mature and breed.

whether it carries recessive genes or not would depend on the genetic make-up of the fish, and not about whether the fish is stunted or not.

i can have a stunted fish which has parents of very large-sized lineage, but will still provide juveniles of the large-gened predecessors.
