That's my guess. Co-dominant, co-recessive, etc. Of course, then add in modifiers...

First berried lady has apparently hatched out her eggs but no sign of wee ones just yet.

Second lady is now berried.

Caught another very quick glimpse of a wee one but again, it darted back into hiding. I'm thinking with my lack of being able to only spot one or so, there may not be many in the tank. The second lady has a considerable amount more eggs than the first so we'll just have to take a wait and see approach.

Maybe the O. cocama's are having a midnight snack? Nah.

Still nothing new to report as yet. Haven't seen any wee ones from the first hatching.

Second lady is still berried.

They look soooo small compared to the Tham's.

"Still nothing new to report as yet."

I know what you mean. It's soooo funny I'm into selective breeding since I'm a VERY impatient person. LOL

It's almost like a kid at Christmas. You can see all your presents under the tree but....no touchy until Christmas day.

Suspense is over......

Sry not the best of pics. Actually found (2) in there this morning. These guys are excellent hidders that's for sure.

So now the question is.....is there something here to work on or not?

I have to admit...these guys are just pretty awesome looking. Papa looks kewl now that he has even gotten bigger.

I would say there is definitely something to work on. Are those 2 that you found whites?

My suggestion is to keep ALL these offspring together with the adult white, until gender is able to be determined on the offspring.

If white offspring are opposite gender of white adult, those are worth white gold to you. Those are ultimately the ones you want to keep together to breed to start your strain of whites.

Lots of things will be apparent down the line such as any problems in the strain, however as of now it is too early to tell and you have to do more breeding.

CONGRATS!

Kinda hard to tell actually. Some glipses you can see they are "white-ish" others look to be clear.
