813aquatics Posted January 20, 2022 Share Posted January 20, 2022 So yesterday I picked up a bunch of gold neon tetras on a whim mostly because I’d never seen that variation in retail, why not right? Anyways I work graveyard shift and have the day off so naturally here I am at 2:27am deep google searching any documented process on the origin of this color variant. I couldn’t find any specific stuff on selective gold breeding BUT I did come across an excellent scientific article on Red Color Coverage genetic breeding for neons. I think the background info highlighting specifically where the farms are (yay maps), the breeding techniques, and diet/habitat are all pretty interesting, RCC genetic mumbojumbo aside. Here’s a link: http://ejournal-balitbang.kkp.go.id/index.php/iaj/article/download/9106/7268 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
