Still looking for improvements, I have this year tried a new cross in order to continue to move forward with my 'goldfish '.. This is what i enjoy in the Red melon discus reproduction .
This will mark the beginning of a new test for my red discus lines.
I propose you to discover here the fruts of this selection 2015…
Two discus feasting Artemias…
A reproduction far from perfection
The goal for this year was not to obtain perfect fish from the first generation.
Infact, I did not knew if I had taken the right direction.
How were going to express certain genes? May I hope something positive? and especially… Did I not waste my time and get an average result?
Having very little room I strive always to think my cross (Maybe too much…).
And even if this red melon discus reproduction is not perfect from a standpoint of physical criterias; These first results still caught my eye.
The photos I share here are a presentation of my selection for this year. Those are young fish that still require time to express all of their charms.
The color remains nonetheless quite interesting and merit to pay attention.
For the next generation, It will take in my opinion that I remain vigilant (among other) on the quality of the fins.
Potential future generation I hope for year-end 2016 could also reveal more problematic tares (?)
You never know!
At the shape level, You can also see a discus more "successful" that meanwhile has streaks of remains in the region of his head.
Even if it does not have the pattern and color I am looking for, I find it rather elegant.
But stop here explanations… I let you discover the rest of my humble little "work" breeder.
