Jeremy_fishguy Posted May 28, 2021 Share Posted May 28, 2021 Hey all, I've recently become pretty fascinated about the world of guppy genetics and selective breeding! I'm trying to read and watch as much as I can to learn about the topic and would love to try and develop my own strain. I have a couple of preliminary questions: 1. How can you know the phenotype traits of a female? Do you just have to breed her with a male and see what the offspring throw? 2. In regards to genetic diversity, are there any rules/guiding principles in regards to breeding 'new' guppies into a line that youre trying to set in order to increase the genetic diversity, or is this not advised? 3. When trying to create variations/lines, do most people have an end goal in mind and breed for that objective, or do they see what a certain guppy with throw, cull to what they like and watch it develop over the generations? I would love any other insight that you may have - any fun facts or cool stories that you'd like to share. As I said, Im pretty intrigued by it at the moment. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
