Default Funny Guppies

Looking back when I kept my first freshwater fish, I had two guppy's that had babies and one of the babies, once grown up, had babies with its mother and the result was some very strange looking examples, one had one eye bigger than the other, another one had a strange anal fin arrangement.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Yeah, i haven't had it....yet. My molly is trying to get it on with his sisters . But this happened from inbreeding. Bernie explains this well. Pretty much its like humans, there are supposed to be different genes. But since the son mated with his mom (is that right?) then you get these weird babies. They end up dying in the end. Sorry you had to expreince it.
