Post Genetic Example Requests

Hey all, you guys see my "Genetic Example" stickies at the top of this category. I'm going to make a bunch more, as many as I can muster up, then put them all into a new thread and have Indjo lock it so that you guys can just scroll through them and gather information as needed. Are there any crosses you'd like to see in particular? I've already created blacks, copper butterflies, cambodians, iridescent colors (how spead-iridescence and wild type iridescence work, steel blues, turquoise, and royal blue.) If you'd like me to demonstrate something in particular, post it here and I'll add it to a list. It'll take me a while to make all of the crosses, but it's great information (especially for new breeders.)

Thanks!

Teehee.

In order for a solid to become a butterfly, it needs to posess the "variegated" fin gene. This is what causes the split in color. Without that allele, there is no butterfly. I created a copper butterfly example, where you cross a solid to a butterfly. The genetics are described there. Some other examples I'm planning on doing are-

Yellow bettas
Opaque bettas
Pastel bettas
Dragons

Just wanted to see if you guys had any more ideas, or wanted to ask "what happens if you cross this and this?"

Hmm, could you do one on grizzles? I hardly ever see a good grizzle anymore. I would love if people knew how to breed for them, maybe they can get some love

Just a note for your future Punnett squares: alleles are case-sensitive (capital letters usually reserved for dominant genes). Do not capitalize the first letter in their genotype unless it is intended.

For instance, in your Rc x cc cross, the heterozygous offspring should be listed as cc and not Cc. While there is no confusion in this case since the alleles start with different letters, it may be important in other diagrams.

To create CTPK, you'll definitely be doing a lot of culling. First you'd have to be very careful when selecting your breeders.
