I have (bought) CBS which appear really nice and I'm hoping woul continue to thrive.

Assuming they do go well I'm curious about the colors.
I do know that CBS mixed with CRS will roughly give a 50% offspring color mix.

What I'm more curious about is the Blue panda ?
Will they breed ? Will they Produce the same ratios ?!

I'm presuming it does not work that way.
So someone more experienced knowledgeable on this give me an idea ?

Hi skar I have crossed blacks with reds down to golden bee but never got blue bolt, mostly they were black with mottled white, over the years I've come to realise it's best to buy a good strain and colour you want and breed them, I separated my black and red and every now and then I get a group of reds showing up where the black carry the genes, what I am doing now is a mix of CRS & orange tiger the first generation is the pic again these are very slow to produce and I find a lot of dead young which I cant figure out other than the strain is to much for them to handle, If i was you keep them all separate but if you have the tanks you can try but once you mix if you put them back with their own kind they take the gene with them throwing odd colours out.
All the charts are not what you'll get its what they think you'll get from what I read from some of the guys with more knowledge than me. Anyway I never got blue bolt but loads of golden bee but you may have more luck, another I did get were black rose from wild type I had a dozen bred by myself and for no reason they wouldn't breed and died off, so now I keep it as simple as possible

richie.p Thank you for explaining your experiences.
From what I can gather, I'll consider myself lucky to have them survive and breed.

I'll leave then to breed and feed without mudding with their genetics.
Thank you
