Oh okay thanks so much for your help, I really want to try to get my own special line of some sort (someday) this information is really helped and I appreciate greatly.
I could only see two of your photos (it won't let me view some of the attachments), but your fish are very beautiful! Your photos are getting me much more excited for my next spawn.
Oh!! I want to show you the little guy I have now (only one survived, I think I made a mistake in rearing this was my first spawn). Not sure if he retained the platinum, it kind of looks like he did. I suppose it is hard to say.
