By accident, I got this cool hybrid, Blue Pearl gave birth to these, just a guess that it probably crossed with a brown sakura that I have. There are a few of them really dark in color, some reverted back to wild, but this one is almost black.
Sorry the image isn't that sharp, capturing it from my cell.

rili x blue diamond give off black neo. i know because thats what happened with mines haha
Then I think its good to pass on this knowledge, as not many knows
that crossings could throw out blacks. For those who may like black neos or sakura, mine is not dull black, rather glossy black, you may want to give it a shot? :)

Got some babies but some look dark, others still transparent. Kinda weird though...

Wonder what kind of hybrid if crossed Yellow Neo x Red cherry?
This is an experimentation and I was expected orange neo...

True! I noticed mine look wild, some is transparent weirdo. :icon_conf

Then if I keep them breed together Wild x Wild and/or Wild x Yellow what would I get in F2?


Yellow and cherry do not cross well. Almost all will be wild. A few of the offspring my throw unimpressive cherries in future generations, but you'll have to breed the red back in.

I'm not a shrimp geneticist, but I bet you would get some wild, some cherry and some yellow. But again, I expect it would take several generations of breeding the same color offspring to get the colors to darken again.
