    Default Checkerboard x cobalt

    Hi all,

    It seems that in my community tank, I have a paired up discus couple. It is a red/white checkerboard and a cobalt blue.

    Does anyone know what kind of fry I will get from this combination?

    Thanks in advance for the response and help.

    Greetings from the Netherlands

    It's a good cross, but there is no telling what you will get in the fry without knowing the genetics of the parents. I would expect you to get mostly Turks.

    Is the red/white checkerboard a PB?

    You're right, Pat. If it's PB based it's a no go. Ugly peppered fry is the usual result.

    Hi thanks for youre answers!

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by pb. I tried to look it up in my own language but then it means "private message" 😅

    Is there a way I can upload a photo here? So you can see the 2 together?

    If you are familiar with peppering in PB discus generally what happens when you cross a PB with a non-PB the fry are heavily peppered. Some folks like the peppering but most prefer non-peppered discus.
