    Or I could just forego the tank wipe downs, that would save a considerable amount of time.

    Better pictures of some of the mutts:

    A suprising find when I bred two snow leopards together....some golden fry!


    I am including this pic of the golden to show the shape a bit better: It's the same fish just taken with a cell phone cam

    The red whites I got from crossing two of my F1 adults {(ogon yellow white x ARSG) x (VR x ARSG)} I am going to keep breeding these back to the VR in the hopes of eventually getting the blue halo on the red/white.




    The brown Spotted came from crossing an F1 of mine (san marah x SW) with a Wayne NG White eruption. I am trying to get more of this phenotype to work with and hopefully increase the spotting.


    A snow white that was the second phenotype of the {(ogon yellow white x ARSG) x (VR x ARSG)} cross

    These are from crossing the same Wayned NG White Eruption to a Ricky Lim Golden. These are to be used as golden intermediates in an upcoming joint GLSS project, but if what I believe what I am seeing is true, The Wayne NG White eruption carried the golden gene, and these red/whites are homozygous goldens:


    Two tanks full of young juvies from a Wantanabe T-aqua red turq crossed with my Contest SS


    Wayne NG White Eruption x Red White (trying to get more brown spotted types)



    Peoples Choice winner with mate:

    Older Cross:

    Even more fry on the way: T-Aqua Red Turqs

    Pink Butterfly? This is actually phenotype 1 from my Wang Nichols cross here:
    http://forum.simplydiscus.com/showth...throwback-F1-s






    Wang Nichols Throwback F1's (the red is more intense, pic got a bit washed out) phenotype 2





    ..........stayed tuned

    You are way too busy there. How long does it take to change all the water in all of your tanks?

    Sorry Al, no ill will intended, I honestly thought you had meant to post that in the "Happy Birthday Simply" Thread and asked for it to be moved, not deleted. My bad.

    Al,

    Are these CuriX the ones you bought from me? The CuriX you bought from me had an albino intermediate parent. As a matter of fact you own that albino intermediate parent also. I believe if you crossed the siblings with each other you would get some that were albino. Of course I could be wrong. Rick?
