yes and introduce them on wednsday because your fry will not need food until like friday and the cultures will be settled by then.

I know. If I bred them on Wed, and they actually spawned the same day, then I wouldn't actually need the cultures until like Saturday or Sunday, but i still need to give them 7 days to take before I can start feeding from them...

I'm thinking I'll cross the marble female with the copper marble male... For the other pair I'll cross Nino with Aoki if his fins are stable... if not, I'll cross Aoki and Darth Vader (Blue X Green Lace)...

For some reason, yesterday I couldn't see your "fin rot male" .... he's a gorgeous dragon! God I envy you....

I can't seem to picture your male.
Possibly but you will always have marbles for the next few generations. At least I did. Marble is also difficult to breed out.

Quote:
I do not believe the black copper female has any BF or red in her genetics.
IMO it doesn't matter because your male has red genes so you should still, at least get red fins.

Quote:
The 1st female has the opaque white scales for the white marbling I want, plus she's carrying black and red marbling patters.I have no idea what would happen if I crossed him with the marble female, but I assume the fry would be very fancy...
I can't picture the black and red marbling. And I don't understand how to manipulate marbling to our advantage. BUT
Basically white (both opaque and metallic/platinum) + copper should give you cambo's (red and green - depending on the stronger genetic back ground), white/platinum, copper and mixes (copper, white and red). And due to his marble and bf, you should also get those. (IME)

I hope I got it right this time.

Hmmm I don't know why the pictures won't show up for you? We'll try one more time! Were you able to see the females?

And thank you, I love my dragon, I'm almost happy he doesn't have a perfect mask because his little black scales on his forehead are just too cute. I will be spawning him since there has been regrowth and he is making bubble nests like crazy!

Thank you for all the genetics imput. I've only worked with bicolors and single colors before so this is my first time playing with marbles. I'm not sure how it works and my research hasn't been all that helpful :/

mernincrazy8525, yep I got your PM, I just had to go to work today D:
