    Default Crossing wild heckels with heckel crosses

    I would like to ask if anybody has had any experience crossing wild heckels to heckel cross domestics? I've kept discus for about 2 years now and I've recently got rid of all my domestics in preparation for the arrival of 5 Nhamunda Heckels. I'm curious however if anyone has bred heckels back into heckel crosses and the parameters needed to produce offspring.

    That breeding should not be a problem as all domestics originated from wild crosses

    In addition to Jeanne's comment I have had this discussion with Forrest, a Malaysian breeder/exporter. He said, ".lol, the reason why we call the "cross" first off they r not pure, some breeder used a "cross" to cross the original strains, some use other strains to cross the original. for inbreed or out crossing a strain, aim on what u want them to be, it could be lots of failures on top of generations, choose the best that look like what u want then inbreed again after a generation. "
