Hmmmm, that's three lost messages... Oh well, thanks for the entire post
regarding inbreeding, but I had mentioned some other stuff that you didn't
address, so I will risk the wrath of the list by reposting here.....
Well, I'll ask another "duh" question. All along I've wondered about the
practicality of breeding fish from the same spawn. In fact, one other has
posted here the problem of inbreeding of cichlids in Australia. So,
ideally, the way I would go about this is say, (1) get a batch of eggs of T.
dolichopterus from breeder A, (2) get a batch of T. dolis from breeder
B, (3) try to incubate them around the same time, (4) breed males from A
with females from B, then (5) trade these eggs with another T. doli breeder,
preferably that isn't breeder A or B.
Is that how it normally goes?
Also, what do breeders normally look for in potential parents? Color I
assume, but also size? This is assuming you're going for the traditional
looks for the fish; I personally wouldn't breed albinos, but there are those
that breed specifically for them. Can you breed for temperament?
