    Default Snow White and PB Checkerboard - Good Cross?

    Hi to all! What fry should I expect from this pair? Any chance it could result in something like White Butterfly?
    Thank you!

    It is a PB x non PB cross so could create heavily peppered fry...unlikely to create white butterfly in my opinion...there a numerous peeps here that seem to like peppered discus...I'd say if you wanna try your hand a breeding go for it, but perhaps anticipate not being happy with resulting fry, or being able to sell them, in either case requiring you being willing to cull them.

    Thank you! Snow White is coming from Red Valentines and PB Checkerboard comes from the Red Valentine and PB Checkerboard cross.

    Pablos red melon is typically a PB strain. Golden based melons are out there but are not easy to come by. If both PB parents are clean you shouldn't see any/much peppering. Your fry a very clean but I do see black tips on the finnage though which is tell tail in PB strains but this is not a negative. My red melon and royal yellow strains had very clean body and black in the fins...see my Avatar pic for what I'm talking about.

    No worries mate! Here's a pic of the royal yellow x red melon pair I used to have... unfortunately I was unable to raise any fry from them...
