The fish I want to breed.

I just got this hmpk. I Love him! He has a great personality and is pretty. Got to love the Blue eyes.



I want to breed him to this big ear female. I would love to get some fish that look like him but with bigger white pectorals.





The male is a marble and the female looks to be a butterfly. I want to get some blue eye big ears that are Blue and white. I know it might take a few generation to get just what I want. But will this be a good start?

Its a good start. The genetics of getting blue eyes is very difficult from what I hear.

I have never paid attention to their eyes. But I know they are recessive. You might get them by constantly breeding blue (blue x blue = steel blue, turquoise, royal blue)

To get more ee you will have to breed for at least two generations.

Thats what I was thinking it will not happen over night. But I don't mind because I like both fish with or without the EE trait.

I have another pair that are both EE.

Snowflake, what kind of lens are you using? I've been trying with my canon and macro, but I get lots of blurry pics.

It's not a macro . It's a pentax 18-40mm a wide angle zoom I would call it. When I crop the photos down they look like a macro shot.

I do have some macro filters that screw on the front of the lens. I don't use them much. The wide angle lens lets you get physically close to the subject. That's what I did in the last shot. He was right up at the front of the tank.

You say you get burly photos. What kind of light are you using? Always make sure your subject is in focus before you fit the button. Fish move a lot so I like to shoot with extra light and fast shutter speed with an ISO as low as I can get.
