Coccina x Splendens hybrid?

Hello! Just wondering if members of the coccina complex could hybridise with member of the splendens complex. Does anyone have any experience? I will not try breeding them, just curious.

I think the possibility would be very low, considering they are not just separate species, but are from two entirely different complexes. However, I can't say that it's impossible given my lack of knowledge on hybridisation.

Even if it was possible, I sincerely hope no one attempts it.

Most of them have different breeding styles as well so I don't think it's very possible. We only hybridize within the complexes so far but as LBF said, it's really not condoned. I've learned quite a bit since last time I suggested hybridizing a wild fish into a domestic fish and it's really not couth in the fact that the wild species are so rare nowadays, better to preserve them then to fiddle with something already perfect!

Wilds: Wajok, Rutilans, Siamentorialis, Hendra
Leopards: Luna, Astrael, Dorian, Cullen, Gallifrey
Gargoyle: Cloudjumper
African Fat Tails: Nox and Lux
