Sorry, they will not come out marbled
Yep yep.illy-d said:^I could be wrong, but I think by grey they mean the regular striped variety... (I think).
I don't think the regular striped convicts were ever called that (?). But when the 'golden' or 'pink' con came out in the '60's they were called 'pink congos' to make them sound like they come from Africa. A lot of books I used to have, 'golden' cons were called 'pink congos' but I have never seen the regular cons called anything in books other then convicts or 'zebras'. My public library, when I was a kid, had some aquarium books that were defiantely pre- WWII, and I never seen convicts refferred to as 'congos' in those books. If I remember well, they were most often called zebras, going way back. I think 'pink congo' was a term that was coined in the '60's when the 'pink' version came out, to make the new 'golden' strain sound African, and therefore more desireable.dwarfpike said:If ya were really old school TFG, you'd call them 'congos' ... their first 'common' name way back when they were imported ... talk about confusing common names. :lol:
