That's what I thought too GreenBliss but apparently they produce some kinda or orange to yellow offspring. Which I guess is a good thing since I can have a few more colors in the tank.

And thanks Soothing Shrimp. That does make sense genetically as well since the pigments are probably not too far off from each other. Now if they taught that in my genetics class instead of calico cats...you can bet I would have absorbed a lot more!

Anyone know how tiger breeding works? I have been interested in red tigers but 2 problems 1) I can't find any and 2) I have some regular tigers, not sure if the reds and regulars will breed and create other variations? Both are wild type (regulars are wild and the red stripes as also wild) so not sure what would happen? Anyone know?
