Apparently there are three names for it, crown, umbrella and merah.
Is that expensive for a Guppy out there?
I've never seen any being sold here and even pictures of them are hard to find so I'm assuming they're relatively rare...in this country anyway.
The gene showed up in some Endler hybrids that I bought but it isn't fully expressed so it's going to need some linebreeding to get it to show fully, I'm on my second generation now and I'm waiting to see the results in the young of that brood. It takes a while to develop so you can only see it in my adult Fish, whether it shows earlier in more linebred Fish I'm not sure, time will tell.
I must admit that when it's fully expressed it looks like they have been beaten up and have shredded fins but in partial expression it's actually quite beautiful.
I'm not sure if they can be shown, I'm going to contact the BLA to see if I can show them at some point next year, there doesn't seem to be a class for them at the moment.
