Thread: Bulgarian Green Variations

  1. #21
    Very finally Fins :-

    Mugwump asked

    I've noticed that many of the bg, and especially the seal points, acquire the swept back, hooked?, what stage does this develop ?...
    I have seen a certain amount of these, but haven't done a specific count, however the photos in the previous post hopefully show that the majority of these fish haven't developed the trait. Also, many of the fish that did develop it weren't Bulgarian Greens, so I'm inclined to suspect that it's not a trait specifically linked to or caused by the gene.

    Thanks for the reply.....

    A new batch....

    Father is about a year old from the previous documented batch.
    mother is the sister of his mother.

    At this stage I'm guessing that father is D/(Gm or possibly +) - (S or +)/+ - Sm/+ - pb/pb - bg/bg
    Mother is D/+ - S/+ - pb/pb - +/bg

    If all goes to plan, and they only went free swimming this morning, I should have a clearer idea of their parent's genetics in a couple of months.

    Another week and the tank was starting to look rather crowded, so although the parents were still doing a good job, I thought it best to remove them today, but not before I took these photos...

    As you can see the babies are growing well, but sadly there's no sign of any blushing ones, so Dad obviously doesn't carry a stripeless gene.
