Believe it or not, it originally came from fire reds! Crazy, huh? The wilds I have seen don't look like mine, so I don't think so. Although the bars do seem to be more of a wild trait (for humans and shrimp. LOL)

Been working on this for about 2 years now. At the moment I get maybe 5% higher grades. Am trying to improve that now.

I decided to reverse my idea of the 2.5g, and instead am cycling a 10g to move all the lower grades to. That way I don't have to wait for my higher grades to get used to new params- or worse- some unforeseen tragedy to happen to the ones I really want to work with.

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!
