nope !, actually from f1 parents, they are both brothers. if you notice the fish on the left; his barring isn't up to my breeding standards and he normally get's removed when I introduce females. The other male is part of my hara breeding program B. A few posts above is my F0 male that's part of breeding program A.

They look so different. I actually like the way the hara with smaller lines that do not go into the dorsal fin look. Is the standard for it to go up into the dorsal or for it to stop on the body?

when I got my f0 group i noticed exactly what you just said. it appears that with aquarium breeding, the black barring gradually becomes phased out. the intensity when full colored lightens and the dorsal barring diminishes as the line progresses. here's a side by side....

tires_6792 & Belexes, very excellent looking Cobwe. Near my ideal of 'perfect' patterns!

cjacob316, Just give him a little more time & he'll be a show-stopper! Each one shows a slightly different variation on coloration & patterning. I've been extremely fortunate to have a seemingly stable species-only set-up in a 40BR with 3 DOM males/3 subDOMs/8 females. Check out the variation in the 3 DOMs. Look at the egg spots, the penetration of bars into the dorsal etc.... These are all from the samr batch of F1s!

I got mine from Dave btw, so I assume you bred them?

i've seen him look pretty good sometimes when i first walk into the room, but once he sees me he lightens up, has a great looking yellow crest already though

Definitely a fun fish to watch as they mature :thumb: It's possible that they were from me but Dave has multiple sources so I'm not certain.
