I was reading in Breeders 'n' keepers (B'n'K) vole one that some breeders are influencing sex using temprature lower temp more females high males. One of the breeders indicated that taiwanese breeders were rumored to be dosing hormones in order to get more females. Any one have any thoughts or insight.

On a large scale, it may actually be less expensive to use an additive instead of heating/cooling large amounts of water. So that may make financial sense. It's how a lot of farms operate: how can the most profit be made using the least effort and resources?
