    You have done a nice job growing out that discus. I will be watching closely to see how you make out.

    Rod,

    At this time I cannot conclusively say either way. I can identify some of the fry as being pb's but not all of them. It might have helped if I had ever raised blue diamonds (I haven't) to have a baseline to compare too.

    Two weeks...Had to pull mom and dad yesterday:





    And Rod, to answer your question I beleive them to be all PB's meaning the Dark angel is homozygous for the PB gene. Also suprised at the amount of red in the dorsal and anal regions at this stage.

    Hi Rick,

    They look really good.

    Yes, i agree. Homozygous for the pigeon gene. Will be interesting to see how similar they are to dark angel. I don't think that red will last long, as soon as the secondary color comes in it will cover it over.

    That is what happened with my batch, and VERY quickly, as in within two weeks from where this batch is now. Was wondering if that may play out differently given the cross but I assume it will not. Still looking great Rick and again, its awesome to have these batches to compare against eachother as they develop and to learn more about this strain and its potential.

    Good to see you around Rod, getting your input on these things is invaluable.

    Rick if you want to sell some of these let me know I would be interested in a group to see how they grow out.

    Hi Rod & Rick,
    Can you please tell me how you know they are the pigeon gene when they are so small? The only way I would ever now at that size if i saw peppering in which case I don't see.
    They look perfect!

    any advice I give is just that, advice. I say it because it's what works for me.

    Thanks. First tell tale sign is there is no variation in types of fry, each and everyone looks like the other. If the DA was heterozygous for the pb gene, only 50% of the fry would be pigeon bloods, and as a result you would see two different types of offspring.

    Ok so I think i am following this. You know that she was crossed with a pigeon blood to make the Dark Angel and Pigeon is dominant. If she would have been Heterozygous meaning only half pigeon gene than half the young would be Heterozygous for pigeon and the other half would be non pigeon. But since she is Homozygous all the offspring are the same.. Heterozygous for pigeon.. (I just used the pungent square thing to figure that baby out). Am I getting this right?
