Yes, I am interested in genes and punit squares and all that, I have always wondered what crossing two dominents would do.

Ok, good luck!
And i did some research, and if you combine two dominent traits, the fry will show a mixture of the two, or display signs of both. If both of your fish are pure, (meaning they have two dominent traits in their genotype) Then all the fry wil be like this. If one has a recessive gene, then 50% will still be this way, while the other 50% carry on that trait. If both parents have the same recessive trait, then 25% of the fry will have and display that recessive trait. (Like if both parents have a recessive halfmoon, then 25% will be halfmoon)So if you decide to breed two of the 'trait carriers' together, then 25% of their fry will show this. If each parent has a recessive trait, but they are different, then 25% will display a mixture of both recessive traits.

I know it is confusing lol. I wish I could draw out some punnet squares to make it easier.

You can release her now, as long as he has a good head start on his nest :)
