White snowflakes. I already have f2 fries. So far breeding showed that this white phenotype is created from homozygotous magenta (plus probably TS to make better roundtail), blau (probably european), stoerzbach. On the left when he was young, on the right when he was old. Sons and daughter f1 after cross with female from wild […]
A non red fish showed in a line. It is so called european blau or in russian nomenclature low ee (lowerer synthesis in erythophores). It is a recessive gene, which reduces red pigment on a body but can left some red in fins – it depends on exact color cells. Photos of brothers. One blue, […]
So little update on these guys. I wanted to switch dorsal color from red to yellow and add VEG to make fish more shining. I used fish from Jacek Ambrożkiewicz – females from his ls guppies. Decent results. Need to work on dorsal size but coloration it correct. Also some of them looks like living […]
Well some fries have colored up. Results are not so spectacular as I assumed when starting this project. In fact crossing singas (which is Y-linked and coloring up forebody) with another gene that can possibly color up forebody was not the best idea to verify X linking of Sc gene. Below are results. And now […]
Since I didn’t receive any fry from my crossing of halfblack moscow I took from Bolek two halfblack females impregnated by panda males. Female PP: Male PP (example of Bolek’s panda male – not sure if he was a parent): F1 (swims together): There are two kinds of females (one with visible HB and one without […]
Fish which I hope are heterozygotous Stoerzbach metallic are at last mature. So I put males and females together at 08.01.2017. For some serious results I have to wait then so for now few pictures of males. They are looking interesting, especially this dark dorsal stripe. Shape of the tail and size of fish have […]
I have first fries from singapur blue and X-linked Sc females cross. One of females gave birth to 64 fry! In about 1.5 month males should color up enought to see if females gave them X chromosome with Sc gene – can’t wait to see the results!
After I have produced japan blue males from galaxy cross I have made (you can read about it here) I assumed that F1 females will carry on one of X chromosomes (after father) Schimmelpfennig platinum (I will call this gene Sc as well). Well testing this out was bigger temptation than pursuing galaxy roundtails sooo […]
