A start at my light colored MG line.

Well recently I acquired some new breeding stock, and I've decided to try breeding again in a couple of weeks. I am conditioning 4 fish at the moment incase doesn't work out or vice versa. Here are my breeders.

My females

Light colored MG HM girl.She has a beautiful color and fins. She carries DT.Her spawn also produced some shortfin PKs so there is a slim chance she could produce them too.
Age: 2.5-3 months old.




Next a steel MG DTHM girl.She has great fins and an amazing dorsal. She is loaded with eggs and has been barred up ever since I got her. Her spawn also produced some PKs.

Age: 2.5-3 months old.



My males

Cyril

He's a pastel boy with great fins and nice color. He comes from a multicolor/MG line.

Age: 3.5 Months old.




Finally a great young MG male. He's DT geno and has great fins and colors. He also comes from a line that produced some PK.

Age: 2.5-3 Months old.



Originally , I was going to breed my opaque/pastel girl to Cyril, but she's a bit too big for him. So now I'm going to try to breed him to the DTHM girl. If they spawn, I should expect some blue/red multis, MGs and maybe some pastels. For finnage, I should expect HMs, DT, and DeT with great broad dorsals.

If that spawn doesn't work out or if I have 40 or less fry by the 2-3 week mark, I will be spawning the other two MGs. If I do try to spawn them, I should expect some MGs, and blue/red multis. For finnage HMs, DT, DeT, and maybe a few PK, again with great broad dorsals from the DT gene.

I started conditioning yesterday, and today both males have pretty big nests in their tanks, and the females are pretty eggy.

I plan on putting the pastel boy and the DTHM girl in the spawning tank on the 15th.

MG means mustard gas which is a type of coloration. It's pretty much a blue/yellow bi-color or multicolor.

Thanks Mr.V!
I can't wait either! I'm curious to see the colors and patterns for the first pair. The male carries marble and the female has a nice BF pattern. So I should expect a few marbles, and butterflies.
