So with that said, yes in order to preserve the viability of the animals in my opinion the bugged animals should be eventually culled from the hobby as they display a genetic defect and are in our experience less viable as captives from a breeding and birth defect standpoint.

I would say it will be almost imposible to take all the bug eyed lucis from the hobby. Great post once again! Rep points for you!
