So, it's T-minus 2 hours before my family and I drive up to Montana until Friday. When I get back, I plan on starting a new spawn. I've been conditioning my male superblack HMPK, Storm -
for the past few weeks. He's vibrant in color, strong-bodied, active and ready to go. The only thing I'm debating over now is which female to breed.
Here are my choices-
Sabra, an emrald-green marble FM seen here:
Aaaaand Rain, a baby-blue (which is like a light steel blue, I suppose. o_O) female seen here:
If I breed Sabra, she's more likely to carry the black gene, and since Storm comes from a black line, it'd rear somewhere around 10% black fry (that is IF Sabra is a black genotype), the rest being marble and turqoise.
If I bred Rain to Storm, I'd have a spawn of close to 100% all blue fry, since Rain comes from a blue line and black is a recessive gene. That'd mean that all of the offspring would be black-genotype, so if I bred my best female F1 with Storm again, I'd have a spawn with about 50% black phenotype with 100% black genotype.
What do y'all think?
Oh, also, Sabra is the direct brother of Levi, here:
