The Sire is third generation (F3) darkbody orange dalmatian VT male of my own line. He shows minimal iridescence on the body and finnage. Finnagewise, his caudal fin could be a bit longer. The Dame is darkbody orange VT female which was imported from Thailand. She she has a nice bodyshape with a smooth topline and nice shaped finnage.
With this cross I hope to obtain offspring with strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be dark-, lightbody red, orange and/or yellow with a chance of dalmatians to pop up.

   
 
 
   

06/05/17: The pair spawned.
07/05/17: The fry hatched, seems to be a small spawn.
08/05/17: The fry entered the free-swimming stage. Removed the male.
10/05/17: The fry is feeding well on vinegar eels and BBS.
15/08/17: 15 weeks old! Some fish turned out slightly shortbodied, but also jarred some young males with a good potential. Below an impression of two red VT brothers. So far I did not spot any female though......

   
   
   

16/09/17: Update on the two red males from last month and four other brothers. Looks like there are two females in this spawn afterall!
