I’ve done several new crosses with my lower sword and double swords over the last couple of months. These are the first ones to begin coloring up.
You’ll notice the pink spot on the body of the male in the top photo (This is Purple Body Mutation or Pb.) The gold patch on the front of their heads expresses Metal Gold Gene (Mg.)
I’m excited to see how some of my other sword crosses look over the next couple of weeks. I’ll post photos once those fish start to color up.
