Well Ryan, it's a bit complicated by the Cichlid folks. Biologists use P0
for the start of a genetic tracking for "Parentis 0" (or is it Parentis 1?).
The Cichlidiots modified it and call the parents F0 but the next generation
F1, just as the scientists do. "F" standing for "Filius" or "brother." I
have some fish in my fishroom that we think are about F30, having been
introduced to the hobby in 1974.
Does that make any sense?
