Good luck! What is “line” breeding?

With 'line' breeding, you breed close relatives with each in order to emphasize the traits or features you desire. Say you had a guppy with a big dorsal fin, you could breed that guppy to close relatives to then choose the offspring with big dorsal fins to continue or even improve the big dorsal fin line of guppies. As we say here in the South,  'Mah family tree don't fork'. 🙂

Eventually other desirable traits can be eliminated, so you might have to outcross to non-close relatives to bring back the traits you lost or maybe to even add new features like color to your line.

And @Ryan looking forward to seeing those pics!
