I too would croos mother/son but first you gotta show off that great female... pics please!!
Thanks! Both female and male have the same marble pattern. The parents are siblings.
You can see the female in this video. It is a V part series if you want to watch the fry grow. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqE6N..._order&list=UL
She can also be seen here.
Most of her female offspring are looking very nice, too. Maybe better, too? One of her daughters is getting the same pattern. I could also do a sibling cross. Decisions decisions!
I know my purebreed ragdoll kitty was developed by crossing a mother to a son. So, why not do this with fish?
