if you need new onyx to negate the effect of inbred, LMK, we can trade some. I most likely going for the LIRA local collection trip, may be you can pick up the new ones and the acans I promised you on the way back.

Since the male died a while back, I paired the female Onyx perc with its offspring. After killing off a few she finally accepted one.

And today I have eggs from this pair. !! The male is from the 2nd batch and is about 10 months old.

Will be interesting to see what comes from this pairing ?

Cool news!

BTW my 3 are doing fine. Also I notice your hybrid comes in 2 different body shapes? A : regular, B : slight humpback.

Thats is really cool! I can't wait to see how they turn out.

I wouldnt sweat the inbred fears clowns are good till F6 -F7 and since you started with two seperate species I would guess you couldn't get more genetic variety then that :)

wow...most of the ones i see have alot of black on them....my pair still doesnt come close to it yet...though the larger one is getting darker a little at a time...

DrGonzo 08-15-2009 08:31 PM

Mine seemed to take a while to darken up as well.

DR GONZO...
your clown seems to have darkened up nicely...but he still looks very juvenile..he will only get nicer when it gets bigger

The gene for the black coloration must be very strong. Mine are from your first batch and they are still looking quite orange. I'll post pics soon.
