    rdiscus, Rick is right in most cases Red Melons don't have a nice white face, the ones you are showing are not full grown and IME most younger Red Melons are not solid red. The fish Arturo has he got from a Sponsor on SD and they were being sold as Velvet Red's. I would like to see an adult Red Melon that has a very white face and deep red body like Arturo's fish. Allot of red pigeons are allot alike but again if you look at an adult Red Melon they really look nothing like a Velvet Red IMO.

    There are several white based pb that are not solid white, red/whites and ogon yellows to name a few.[/QUOTE]

    Thanks Rick, I know very little about white based, and did not know Red/Whites and Ogon Yellows were white based at all alway thought the were PB's but like I said that is something I know little about.

    I know it kind of looks like that on the picture but so far I don't see any papering at all (not yet) but usually at this stage they should show some but nada...

    Updates: First I'd like to mention that the fry is 12 days old, it was never feed with brine shrimp at all I usually do feed my fry with it but this time I was in vacation for a week plus they didn't get wc for 3 days after I got back (5th July) I was so busy so I just start feeding them with some flakes they start eating little by little so i decide to skip the brine shrimp and then i feed them my home made beef heart mix and they love it so here a video of them eating enjoy...

    It looks a white diamond but the picture darkness gives the appearance of something else like ghost.
