    Yes Armando, they eat BH mix once a day. Every other day, additionally, they get usually sera discus granules as a second meal/snack.

    You need to ask the supplier what they are intermediates of. That will be the recessive gene. So if both of yours are intermediate, then they are half Dominant gene half recessive gene, D-r. Mathmatically, Dr x Dr would produce 25% rr, the recessive type, 25% DD the dominant type, and 50% Dr, like you have.

    The "I" means intermediate, which means 1 parent is albino. I thought that 2 intermediates produced mostly albino offspring, but I have no experience, just recalling what I thought I read here somewhere...

    I just presented basic Mendelian genetics ideas, nothing fancy. Google "punnett square" for more info. Intermediates mean they have some other dominant gene that is presenting itself (phenotype?), but they have the recessive gene also (genotype?). Strains have gotten so mixed it could be hard to say.

    I just realized this is Winnie's Discus' sponsor section. Maybe post in the breeding section if you want to continue, or we could even move the conversation.

    Great explanation, first of, thank you! The recessive gene is the Golden, Steve. What you said was also true Isaac, there is no albino in them as far as I know. The word intermediate is to address the golden gene here. "I" doesn't always mean it is Albino, Daniel. Like Steve mentioned, it is used for recessive gene. It's best to ask the supplier what "I" is for however "I" in GLI or GLSSI will always stand for Golden genes.
