Ok I have been trying to get my show CT orange female to breed with the perfect orange DT male I got with her, no dice, she just doesn't like him..But she did like the Classic Cambodian CT I just got hie form is not as good but her genes will fix many things, like I said she is absolutly show quality perfect fins, no irid and her color is pumpkin orange.
With this cross I will get the best of the both of them some Cambo originals and some nice orange CTs.
Also, as I am writing this, one of my beautiful Aquastar red females is spawning with a huge dark yellow male these are HM, he is relatively clean, not 100% but workable.
She was another "Problem" female, I call het "The Shredder" because she killed 2 males already, so...I got a Big Mean yellow male and viola!!
This spawning will also give yellows and reds..not sure if Aquastar has yellow in his red lines but could be.
In any case the yellow will show sometime for sure, yellow isn't a gene rather a combination of 3 or 4 genes in the right combination, it is also recessive.
