Super Black HMPK x Emerald Marble PKFM?

Heeeey all.

So, it's T-minus 2 hours before my family and I drive up to Montana until Friday. When I get back, I plan on starting a new spawn. I've been conditioning my male superblack HMPK, Storm -




for the past few weeks. He's vibrant in color, strong-bodied, active and ready to go. The only thing I'm debating over now is which female to breed.

Here are my choices-

Sabra, an emrald-green marble FM seen here:



Aaaaand Rain, a baby-blue (which is like a light steel blue, I suppose. o_O) female seen here:




If I breed Sabra, she's more likely to carry the black gene, and since Storm comes from a black line, it'd rear somewhere around 10% black fry (that is IF Sabra is a black genotype), the rest being marble and turqoise.

If I bred Rain to Storm, I'd have a spawn of close to 100% all blue fry, since Rain comes from a blue line and black is a recessive gene. That'd mean that all of the offspring would be black-genotype, so if I bred my best female F1 with Storm again, I'd have a spawn with about 50% black phenotype with 100% black genotype.



What do y'all think?



Oh, also, Sabra is the direct brother of Levi, here:

Where are you in CO? I may need to pick some of their fry up! Lol. Trade for some of my white fry? Lol. Personally I'd breed to the black. But you can always do two spawns!

Hee Hee I'm in the Springs. You?

I'd be happy to do a trade. =D

The only downside of breeding to Sabra is her CRAZY jumping-gene that a lot of marbles carry. She used to look like this:




LOL

I'm in Aurora so not too far. Hmm... I think the marble would be interesting. That'll throw a few blacks.

Okay just lost my HMPK white male this morning. I bought this pair 2 weeks ago and very upset with the lady whom I bought them from. So here are my options tell me what you would do.

1. Order another HMPK white male from aquabid for this female

2. Mate her with a HM opaque male, he has irridencese on his body and fins, he is the one in my avatar but with more color now.

3. Mate her with a RTPK royal blue male

I love the PK in particular, white of course is my fav color, this is why I got the pair in the first place. If you can tell me what I would end up with if I paired he with the two I have as far as finnage goes and color that would be great.

Thanks for letting me jump in on your thread.....

You black boy is wonderful, maybe I should go black instead of white....
