Carry out a selective breeding


AquaMag magazine has just published my new article in its issue 35. It is intended to give you some keys to perform a selective breeding.

A rarely mentioned topic

Be interesting in reproduction of the discus, It is quickly to care about the appearance of fry who will be born. Will they look like their parents ? They will become more beautiful ?
The genetics of the colors is too often abstract for new passionates. And it's not necessarily mating your two most beautiful fish that you will get long-lasting results.
So, you should have a reflection on what you wish to achieve and learn a few basics.

A selective breeding everybody can reach?

No need to be a professional to carry out a selective breeding! Some hobbyist breeders have also success stories.
You will find an echo in the articles I have written on Fanatik-Discus about the classification of the main phenotypes. (Identification of the phenotypes of discus)
This will help you I hope to understand the close links that exist between all of these topics...
