so do i. genetically, its not possible. but nobody told the fish.
R (red) is dominant to NR (nonred - NR1 is yellow, NR2 is orange). since the parents were both yellow, they had to be NR/NR. so they dont have an R to pass to the offspring, so all the offspring should be NR/NR. but somehow there is R in their gene pool.
I love the one in the middle of the last two pictures (I think its the same fish)
And @wayne I could be wrong but I BELIEVE red is a more dominant color than the mustard gas variation.
this is true. but both parents were mustard gas, so they couldnt have had red to pass on to the offspring... no clue how it happened. neither does anyone ive spoken to about it.
got a new charger for my camera, so its back in action. 3 new pics.
my amazing redblue rosetail. this guy has his tail folded and overlapping even in full flare - massive amounts of finnage on him:
and an OHM red blue. less finnage, but the lines are crisper and the colors perfect:
and a cute mustard gas HM:
