WhitecloudDynasty Posted May 31, 2022 Share Posted May 31, 2022 So last year I added a new species to the fishroom in hope on working and improving them. Long story short they can cross breed and their babies are fertile...so that's a no no But here's the results.... I started with a group of 40 fish vietnamese white cloud(vwc)Tanichthys micagemmae. I wanted to improve the red and white in their fin plus the side marking in the tail. Not my photo..just an example BUT I soon found out their female are very attractive to my white cloud mountain minnow(wcmm)Tanichthys albonubes male. I immediately could find young hybrids around 2-3 months old. Here my male wcmm male And the vwc ..what would you guess their babies would turn out? How did you think I was able to tell the difference in hybrids. . . . . . . . . . Here's a young hybrid F1 Note the lighter body color, darker black lateral line, and plus the side marking on the tail. All came from the vwc. Note the same color dorsal and anal fin tips, and more red on the tail fin. All came from the wcmm. Breeding the F1 x F1 gave me some consistent babies. For the F2 note the side marking on the tail have move from the bottom to the top, also its the same color as the anal and dorsal. All my questions answered these hybrids are going outside to live with the kois. I don't have space to work on hybrids when my wcmm isn't perfect yet. Now what am I going to do with the vwc I bred... An solid side marking on the whole tail will make a beautiful fish..maybe someone else on here will take up that project lol!! @Cory you are a cloud and hybrid fan so hopefully you enjoy this. 1 6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
