Cinnebuns Posted December 10, 2022 Share Posted December 10, 2022 On the topic of stunting, it's generally assumed it is bad for the fish and leads to health problems and such. I tend to go in this direction too but I also see some evidence that this may not be true. It could be different in different species as well. The evidence I see is completely anecdotal. Basically, there's articles around the web stating that various people have had stunted goldfish live longer lives than most non-stunted goldfish. Sometimes up for 40+ years! It makes me wonder if anyone has ever done a study on stunting and what exactly it does to a fish's body and if it really is as awful as we think. I error towards the side that it is bad and should be avoided, but it makes me think. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
