Mischling Genetics/Breeding query

Recommended Posts

Squiggle
Thanks Hoang. So all F2+ will be pure TB?

Not necessarily, you could still get mishlings after F2 if the TB is from Mishling genes, what Marcus was saying is that two generations after a Mishling TB breeds true, all shrimplets are TB, then you should, in theory, be able to say they're pure TB. Hope this makes it clear as mud, hahaha :encouragement:

Just image, u have a misling F2 might contain 25% gene of crystal, 25% or bluebolt, 25% of kk and 25% of RW. If that F2 mate with a Bluebolt, then offspring is F3 which have higher % genes of Bb(greater than 25% on F2) and others genes % will decrease. If you keep doing that again and again, you will end up with higher % chance to have Bb than KK and RW and Crystal (in this case is Mis).

I've got a bunch of F4 mischlings only. Whatever that comes out will be a surprise :victorious:

From what I understand, Mishling x Mishling will go backwards & dilute the TB genes, there is a very slight chance of getting a TB but more likely get all F3 Mishlings :encouragement:

Well I'll see whatever comes out of them, as these are Dean's lovely F4 mischlings. I've seen shadow pandas out of the same tanks ;)

Don't get me wrong, I was just talking about what should happen in theory, I'm sure whatever you get will be very cool &, fingers crossed, you'll get a nice surprise or two :victorious:

Better off picking out all the females and buying a spare male off someone.

Totally agree. I'm happy just to be back into the hobby, and excited to see how these will breed out...

      That is a fantastic photograph! I can't actually see the fuzz you are asking about even with the high quality picture, where on the body are you seeing the fuzz? Simon

      I just did a water change few days ago and this morning I see some fuzz on my crayfish. Hes perfectly active likes to eat his indian leaf, pellets and chase fish around. Any input would be appreicated

      I have 10 chilli rasbora and a killi in a 30(ish) litre tank and they are doing fine and seems about right in size! I hope to get some shrimp for trial at some stage to also go in there but thats for a later date, when things get back to a bit more normal. Simon

      A 600x300x180 tank is perfect for CPD or chilli rasboras.

      So an update...  I called the store that said they had an ADA 90f on their website and they dont have one.  ADA dont even make that tank anymore.   So guys help me out.. do you consider that the 60F 600x300x180 is too small for a small school of celestial pearl danios or cilli rasboras and shrimp?  30 litres This would certainly help me out with the overall build budget!  I have also found a fireAqua tank being imported into Western Australia that is 900x300x240. I am still in the budget and planning stage and would really appreciate your input team. Thanks for your help sub
