It's been awhile since I updated the progress on the Rorschach.
The first generation is maturing, but not really accurate because the
females were not virgin.
The Rorschach that I want carbon copied is having a high time alone
with his mother, sisters, and maiden daughters.
Time will tell when the many fry being born solely from this breeding are his.
So, I have been giving the Pre-Rorschach their own strain name that is fitting, and breeding true. "The Stained Glass Guppy".
These fish have just reached maturity:
It is proving to be a challenge to get it down to one color (preferably
white or very pale shade) on a basically black fish, with color creeping up the body, without sacrificing the black head, but it has only been a couple months.
I would say this is the closest so far:
Some shots of the true Rorschach gals (immediate sisters):
I am really quite taken with this individual from the Stained Glass brood,
but don't have the space for another strain, and might be back peddling.
It is the only one.
In person, this fish looks like it is wrapped in rainbow tinted tin foil:
I am going to encourage a new Chocolate Cherry variation, though,
The Cherry Vanilla.
I will save the pics for the next post so this one isn't too photo heavy.
