I think you guys think you breed DT to DT then one of the DT fry to an ST and so on. Well you breed DT to ST in all cases so you don't get increased swim bladder. The first generation won't get affected much but the future ones will get affected. So it's like this:
1st spawn: DT to ST, 25% DT 75% ST carrying DT gene.
2nd spawn: ST carrying DT to DT. 25%-50% DT
and so on.
DT is a recessive gene. Meaning you can breed DTs together to get 100% DT fry but they have increased problems. So you breed to an ST. The advantage to this is better finnage (mainly in the dorsal) :) It's best you breed to a halfmoon ST for better finnage :)
YES it's confusing. If only I could pay this much attention in school LOL.
