| || | Breeding Platys for Colour
Hello there! As some of you know, I'm working my way towards breeding platys, but I don't understand fish colour genetics. (Horses, yes, fish, not so much. lol. )
Assuming that my parent fish are all bred from a constant color in their pedigree, would this fry colour prediction be correct?
Red Wag (orange body, black fins) + All Yellow= All Reds and Yellow Wags?
Or would I get a bunch of light orange fry? Do fish pass on definate dominant/recessive colour genes, or do they operate in "shades"?
Any help is hugely appreciated!
