Got to remember no one went out to muddy up some strains. One got the clever idea to improve the red by crossing into Cambodian stock. And years later, here we are. So, we now have some breeders interested in preserving some of these colors. They are going to have to breed towards them with the same hard culling that got us away from them. People are going to breed to the standard. A red fish is a red fish, no matter the genetic makeup. And if they have a perfect red, they deserve the top honors in a show. If I breed the old style red, I may have to deal with not winning because of black scale edges. Each breeder must make his own path and breed for what is important. Top honors as Grand Champion or knowing your line is pure for 6 generations. Each has a place in the IBC, or should.

Problem is most people just do crosses and sell fish and you get one and have no idea the genetic makeup of the fish. So.. you taint your line and it can't often be undone. Want to get a program going where people breed pure lines for years and get a certification out of it. And it would go for VT's as well as the other fin types. It is one of the reasons I like to offer a 3 generation pedigree of fish I sell. With the old computer stolen, will have to try and recreate all that info.., but I feel it is important for people to know. I never wanted marble.. yet it is in everything. You can breed away from it and get pretty consistent solid fish in a few generations. Then do an outcross and BAM.. there it is again. Look at AB and the wild colored fish are hot. Each breeder has to pick a path. Hopefully we can get the IBC in a place to preserve as well as change and go forward.

The girls are pretty easy to find in Combtails, but even a male Cambo Veil is scarce and I can absolutely revive HMs out of Veils in just a couple generations.

Hey Darth, just found this on Aquabid. I'm actually on the hunt for a Cambodian male myself.
