Catwoman that used to be thought to be true (yellow and orange are mutations of red so it didn't seem possible to have red and yellow/orange on the same fish) but when a Thai breeder bred and developed a line that had orange fins with red spots (now known as orange dalmation) that was proven false... Unfortunately not much is known about the gene. They are some of the most beautiful fish though IMO!

Chard, how are there 'polka dots' on the dorsal fins? I've never understood this. I saw the dots on my baby too.

My Purple strain throws Green and a sort of Steel, kind of Steel, Black; Purple all together and then put (Gas) Yellow finnage and add Red splashes in there and you have what I have been told can't possibly happen. Here are pictures of a Purple, Black; Yellow and Red male and a Green, Black; Yellow and Red male from my Purple line.
Wow....awesome fish, Chard! Thanks to both you and Matt for the explanations there.....I've seen the orange with red spots before, but not yellow with red (and I had read somewhere that the gene that gives you yellow meant that red could not be present as well). Really cool.....I love learning all this stuff from the experts! :)

In high school there was this cute girl in biology class that I liked so I never paid attention to genetics and inherited traits. LOL! It has something to do with pigment, clusters? You're talking about the darker colored dots like on the outer edge of this caudal, right?

I can definitely see that you have a 'type' based on the kind of fish you post pictures of haha

I like Patsayawan's fish. I used to have a couple marble/koi HMPK pairs from him back in the dim dark ages of my fish keeping.
