Sorry that was actually a typo. Lol
I would love to see another betts like this and learn more about the genetics behind it.
I don't see any red on this fish and every EE I have seen includes red color.
I have of course been wrong many times.
Could anyone guess what would you cross to get this color?
Hehe, I knew it was a typo, just thought it was a cute one, and giving you a hard time about it
My EE girl has zero red.
I'm seeing more that do not.
I know it's not the color you're after, but Jarabas just got some gold EEs, males and females, no red.
Just saying, it is out there if you keep searching.
Is it possible that these two would be genetically similar?
What would you cross to remove the platinum color?
I have a tough time with messy fins, so unless I couldn't find that type color anywhere else, I'd probably keep searching, but your guess is as good as mine, on genetics.
Have you seen Jim Sonnier's genetics pages, and the ones on color/pattern at bettysplendens.com?
Been a while since I read those, not sure if there's anything there that might be helpful to you, or not.
I think--and could be way off base--that breeding to non-dragon and non-metallics will eventually phase out the platinum layer.
Edit to add: Oh, and just a theory I'm kicking around for now, haven't found anything to read up on yet, but I assume the EE thing is color-linked chromosomally on inheritance as I've never really seen a fish whose "ears" were a bright vivid color, but instead they are always white/very light.
