New breeding program

Postby John Dempsie » Wed Aug 06, 2008 8:57 pm

I have almost completed my new breeding system, 630 gallons. Once completed I'll be adding my pairs.

Pairs I'll be working with are;

Scarlet Spotted
Crimson Spotted
Rose Red
Red Melon

Regards,

John.

Been a long time coming, but the very best with your new set-up and breeding program :thumbsup:

Is it home based, or did you finally find premisses?

Cheers, Mick B

Oh Mick, I'm in Leicester you know :thumbsdown: been offered land to build on, a junior school to move in to and a unit that I can't sell from!

I've changed the fish room around since your last visit, and have almost finishing drilling my new tanks, just got to paint them.

It has taken longer then I thought, but getting there.

All the best,

John.

Scarlet, Crimson, rose I understand, not sure re red melons, there is such a glut out there. That said I know in the past you have had terrific ones.

Are you going to obtain some later golden or albino gene for your pools?

Will you not be working with 'yellows', bicolours or tricolours?
All the best

Not bi or tricolours, but Yellows and Albinos,. Melons are really nice! High body clean and very red!

what features will you be aiming at improving John or are you looking to bring out additional feature by outcrossing?

I'm working mostly Spotted types. I have a number of Red Melons some with black tails, some with clear tails, I'm aiming for clear tails.

I have seen with some of the melons and other red based that the colour is now being shown in the tail and i dot mean colour fed bleeding. A bit like what has been done with spotted's - good genuine fish colour past the caudal peduncle.
All the best
