Snakeskin roundtail + Galaxy

Cross between schimmelpfennig galaxy and a snakeskin roundtail.

Galaxy male which I used in this cross (on a picture it has nipped tail fin – normally tail has a nice shape):

I used him on females from a snakeskin roundtail line like pictured below.

Males from this line look like example below and there were not much variation between them. I had two – one died.


Females look like below example. I had two – one died during giving first birth.

It is not very visible on a photo but she has a red bordering of tail fin and a red dorsal fin. I have also assumed that she carry a snakeskin. Second female had much less visible red on fins.

In this cross I also used a female from Bolek’s japan blue line which has clear tail fin.

Based on phenotipical expression I assumed that PP generation has following genes:

Male Y-linked Schimmelpfennig platinum and some unkown genes on X (maybe tailfin colors).


1. Snakeskin roundtail with red on tail (not sure what on how many X)


2. Clear tail with neutral tailfin.

Based on above assumptions I was going to obtain in F1 males with Y linked schimmeplfennig and X from either female 1 or 2 – they would differ in tailfin and dorsal colors. What results was? Well take a look on a photo:

It means that probably PP male (father) has in Y japan blue and in X schimmelpfennig. Male with red on tail is from female 1, clear tail on the other hand from female 2.
