Black Lutino Endler:

As you may know, Albinos (Real Red Eye Albino = RREA) have red eyes because they can not produce melanin (black pigment) and therefore we can see the blood flowing through their eyes. Lutinos (Wine Red Eye Albino = WREA) on the other hand can produce a tiny, tiny amount of melanin that's whey their eyes are dark red.

I managed to push natures limits to it's max and bred a fish that still has red eyes but shows a lot of black on it's body.

Fantastic pics & fish JaSa. The scarlet endlers are beautiful little gems, and the black lutinos are fascinating, such a contrast with the red eyes and black body.

You wouldn't have a few Jap Blue DS for sale in the future, would you? I've been working on a line from an import male but they are not very robust and some extra stock to work with would be a a huge help. A pair of scarlet Endlers would be rather nice too!!:D:hail:  Do the females have any colour in the tail?

Another lot of fry of the JB DS was born yesterday. Will see if there are any good males in there. If that's the case you are welcome to some if you pay freight. Have an albino line of them as well but it comes with the usual problems. Should cross them with Lutino instead to be honest...

Scarlet's still under development and don't really want to give unfinished lines out, sorry. The females have a very, very light red dusting on their tails but it is only visible if the light is right. Need to introduce Blond to make the red really pop.

Thanks Jasa. Very happy to pay freight etc, no worries, please let me know how they turn out. In a few months the weather will be a bit warmer for shipping as well.

Fair enough re the Scarlets, but when you get them to a saleable stage, as I'm sure you will, just let me know. Cheers.

Evening :)
A bunch of Black Moscows is coming up for sale soon. Pair $15 but need to send half grown as adult males don't travel well. Tiger Endler for $10 a pair. Also bunch of Moscow Magentas coming up for sale - but no male looks exactly the same which makes it interesting in my eyes. Would ask $15 pair for them.

Yep, they will be ready in 6 weeks and by then the weather is hopefully kind enough to ship again.

Still more cool guppies! Love the Gull-Wing Panda, did you set out to make them or they just popped up? The Koi strain look like albinos? I'm working with a blond strain right now, though still carrying albino, they seem a bit more robust than the albinos I started with, but the colour is more orangey-red.

The Pandas are a side project from my Black Lutino I am working on. Right from the first mutation within my Red Chest Endlers the single female back then was Lutino and Pink and it has taken 4 years for the two traits to separate due to a crossing over. Pink combined with Moscow gives you Pandas. The Gull Wing got introduced through my Full White Platinums by accident when a male jumped tanks and had a bit of fun with some Lutino Panda females. I first wanted to dump them but thought I see what happens. It did a great job putting Black on the fins so I just keep them as they are. Work on the Black Lutinos continues which is hard because the Midnight gen can be lethal when you take it too far. Need to take a picture of my breeding male as he is pretty close to full black - with red eyes :)

The Koi are Albino, yes. Only Albino can express the white like we know it from Koi Carps. Not many Koi females have been imported so at the moment there are two lines. One is Koi males crossed with HB females and the resulting F1 females crossed back to the Koi father. This will give you 50% original Albino Koi females in F2 but takes +6 month and the first fry is expected next week. HB because it is dominant and every female that expresses it has no X chromosome from the Koi strain. And the other line is with the only two imported females. That way you will get a wider and healthier variety of pure Koi females for the future as you created your females (XX) out of different males (XY) which hopefully contributed slightly different X's. But bottom line is that Albino is Albino and are always a bit tricky...

I bred my original 2 koi males to 2 blonde redtailed females and one of the females produced 3-4 koi (ie red markings on the head) females, and the same of males out of 30-40 fry in the F1 each time, which I wasn't expecting to be honest. I know someone else who did the same thing and also got 10-15% koi-marked fish. I've crossed F1 males & females and they are due to drop in a week or so.  Will be interested to see the result, but the females are still quite young so not expecting many fry this time.

Yep - but don't forget that the Koi expression is not only defined by localized red traits. It also needs the trait LE (Phil Shaddock - leucophore body) which makes up the white body. And as you stated before ("...the colour is more orangey-red"), this is already missing in your fish. Switching to Albino will help but LE is still required for the original look as leucophores reflect all the light back in a scattered way, which makes up the dull white body without the metallic shine as we know it from Full White Platinums.

That's why I usually go for a totally unrelated, very visible, dominant trait in the initial females to single out any X that is not from the original strain.

Ahh, useful information. Thanks. Maybe I should stop calling them 'koi' then, though I'm trying to reproduce what they seem to call Koi Tuxedo Guppy overseas, though there is some white still visible on the photo, which hopefully I can add here.

 

Hmm, nope, not in that format. I'll work on it.
