Default How to cull?

Bros, how do you guys conduct culls? When I restarted this hobby half year ago, I bought myself less than 10 chapalang gups to test my ability. Now it's literally >100... and still producing fries every now and then. Of those chapalangs I only intend to keep the red tux strain. That still leaves me about 100 to cull. How do you normally cull ? Just flush them down ... ? Any humane method you bros can advise ? A bit heart pain to cull those that I raised from fries. If I give them away to Lfs for free, would they accept ?

I don't have bigger fish to feed to, if I give to LFS, they will likely end up in the feeder pack anyway.
I'm using some of the culls to do tank cycling now, and I still have 2 x 2ft tanks of them... very overcrowded, but somehow very lively and healthy despite lack of care. Hmm..

I'll ask around and if any lfs want them.

Haha.. ok, then consider this an offer.

Yea, I used to separate them but now I just mix them altogether and let them mass orgy around. Sometimes, quite fun to watch them chase each other around in that crowded tank.

I always give my culls to a hobbyist to feed his Dragon fish. This way, I wouldn't feel heart pain or guilty of killing it. Hahaha ... By contributing back to the food chain.

For me, I am thinking of releasing the excess fish to a pond near my house.
