I just found a green cherry in my yellow colony! :congratulatory:

I't's not as green as your's, Marcus...but it is definitely green(ish)

I've got a crappy foto of it and you can see the difference to the yellow cherries up the top...and I swear that in real life he looked much greener than that.

Must keep looking...maybe I find more and then I can breed my own! :triumphant:

Yes, you are right Ineke! :) I was looking for that!

..and I have decided, that I really like cherries!

Give me a couple of month on my new "green-ish cherry" selective breeding program and I'm going to kick Marcus' butt, hehehe.

But first I must find another green-ish cherry of the opposite sex. :dejection: Oh well! :o

Woah….play nice..LOL.

Have you determined whether it's a male or female ? After observing a colour variant for a while, I deliberately move them to another tank with a different PH, to see whether they remain that colour….if they do, then they go into selective breeding. Good luck

No, not really sure. I think it's a male though. :dejection:

I must wait until I see him again which is not easy in an overgrown little cube.

Thanks guys they were breed in a pH of 7.2 and we're green to start with. I culled down my colony and moved the greenest ones to a tank with a pH of 6.3 they breed and I picked the greenest of those. These are what u are seeing. Maybe 20 or so of these quality and currently and a few with nice big saddles

Top stuff! Really loving the green on them, so you've managed to keep the green across a few generations now? I'm curious what do the culls look like? are they coming out just as a lower grade green or are you getting some strange colours popping out?

Latest pics of my best green cherry

Colony unfortunately not producing consistency in colour, and gonna introduce a green cherry I've found within my yellow cherry colony to intensify and solidify the colour...well, that's the theory anyway...jibdcb
