Breeding egg layers and mouth brooders in Green water

What is the outcome of breeding in green water? Does this result in better quality fry with better fins and richer colors?

What would be the effect on spawning and the breeding process as a whole?

Would it be better to raise fry in green water rather than breed them in this water?

Regards

the green water is only to make sure fungus don't attack the eggs i don't think color or better quality fry has anything to do with it.those traits are inborn passed by their parents in the genes.

How is it that goldfish attain deeper colors when placed in a pond compared to being placed in a clear water aquarium?

it's either because of their surroundings (whether it's lighter or darker)or tanins in the water. if it's a natural outdoor pond.but thats what i think.personally i've never heard such a thing.so i could be wrong, but i have seen this happen in my some of my tanks.my rcs get redder if they are in a tank with black gravel and paller in a tank thats bare on the bottom. the guppies did the same thing too.

Goldfish may also reach deeper and richer colors in a pond than in a tank because in a pond, the water is very natural, they are in a healthier, again more natural environment, they are constantly feeding on little things living in the water and bugs that fall in which gives them lots of nutrients. In a tank, the fish won't get all of those things.

I had an experience like this recently. I had my guppies and cories in my pond for the summer. When I put them in, they were very regular not very colourful, but today, when I pulled them out and brought them back to the aquarium, they were much bigger, healthier I presume and their colours were vibrant and beautiful.
