Hello

I was just thinking, what would happen if you cross bred 2 different colour tiger barbs? e.g an albino with a green.

Just a random thought lol.

Thanks,
Ben

Hello Ben,

The fry would probably be "nawty" and then they would need to go into Shawnie's tank with her "nawty" fish. ROFL..

Technically, it's not crossbreeding because they are the same species. It'd be like a brown-eyed brunette having kids with a blue-eyed redhead: all the kids would turn out with brown eyes and brown hair unless the brunette carried the recessive genes too, which is possible. If the brunette did, each offspring would have a 25% chance of the having recessive trait.
