lol..those are breeding with two females in separate tubs. I just don't have a camera right now..the white one is in with a white and blue marble. The mustard is in with an all white pearl right now. All are HM
I'm new to this so, why, if you don't mind me asking? The female now has dark stripes and he is still building the bubble nest. I was told to use the marbled one so, I went with it. Any advice is very much appreciated.
Rosetails can lead to x factor rosetails which is a deformity. When you get too much branching you end up with x factor rosetails.
They have small tails, way too much branching, deformed scales, weak bodies, pale colours and stubby ventrals. Plus it can hide without showing for generations before rearing its ugly head.
If the female has lots of branching too then your chances of x factor babies are increased but if female has little branching you can generally assume youll be safe.
However I bred a pair who both had only 4 ray branching (they were siblings and the result of a cross between a trad pk (2 rays) and a hm with no rosetail signs). 3 fry were x factors and many had scale deformities so you cant tell just by branching whether or not youll get the x.
Anyway the males are beautiful especially the first guy. Keep us updated on their progress, cant wait to see how the babies turn out
Thank you for the reply. I have tried searching for female rosetails and have come up blank. I'd buy those specifically for breeding. I am only finding males. This is my first try and, really, there is so much out there in the net..I never know which is right and which is wrong.
