Hm... I give then. Smile It's probable that you were just unlucky with dominant albinism genes.

welcome to the world of genetics. It does your head in. I have spent the last 3 years looking at population genetics and i swear it took years off my life!

I think this is just one of those odd cases that we can explain based on the current data at hand. It would be amazing to do some work on these, and believe me i do plan to (if only to allow me to get some wild caught BN into australia Very Happy)

Just need to get rich first, and im working hard at that now Very Happy

Lol same. Genetics grad here, though I guess that just makes it worse on my mind. ><

Aussielands really need to loosen up a bit in regards to animals tho. >_> It's not like our environment is pristine anymore or anything... <_<

yeah, PhD here Evil or Very Mad Seriously nearly went insane inside the glass bubble labs, I seriously thought i was going to start to see the world in a series of As Ts Cs and Gs like the matrix Shocked

And you do have a point about the environment but by the same token, not all people are as aware of the damage that can be done. we want these fish for our tanks and that is where they would stay...but then again you get nutters who intentionally released foxes into tassie. I can understand the hard line, it annoys the c#&p out of me but i understand it

Down2earth,if you use a male or female from the new pair and put it with the oposite sex from the old pair that might give you a better chance of albinos (if they are not related).The only thing you can do is mix and match them and see the outcome,it would be a great experiment that I myself would certainly do.Would be nice also to know the outcome of your future breedings for reference in the future.

Do you know if the pair you have bred are siblings?
Are the new pair related to each other or related to the pair you have bred?

well the new pair is about 9-10 months old.

the old pair is 5 years old.

i have no idea what the blood lines look like for these fish. but the new young pair produce 100% albinos. so im not going to break them up. but i did order an additional female with them. so i can take the old pair female and put with the young male and female, and take the non paired female and put with the old male. maybe ill get more albinos out of him this way.

but i want brown and albino babies. so would it be bad to keep the old pair together to get brown babies and keep the new pair to put out albino babies ?

i think i can sell the browns faster if they have the "albino gene"

No it wouldn't be bad to carry on as you are,it would be fine.

As for selling them as carrying the albino gene,well unfortunately you don't know if they do,some might,all might or none might.It depends what gene they got from each parent.

I think i am correct in saying this,maybe someone with a bit more knowledge can confirm this or say if it is incorrect.

well im on batch 2 of all browns from this pair. i added another female albino. was wondering what effect would it have if i had another male in this tank ?

i have a fully grown male brown in one of my other tanks and since he is in this tank with a gold nugget. im not sure if they will get along. so i figured id move the brown to one of my other tanks. since this tank produces browns anyways. what harm would it be to add a brown male

Hi how big is the tank again? Having two males in one tank,unless it is really big and they live at each end of the tank,usualy causes problems.
