The Sire is a black/yellow bicolor VT male which I found in a local petshop. I immediately fell in love with his great form and the intense yellow color in the finnage. He shows a shape and a nice primary branching in te caudal. The Dame is a black orange dalmatian VT female which kind gift of my friend Tomas Chuda who found her in a local pet shop in the Czech Republic. Her shape is very promising and also shows a great primary branching in the caudal fin. The dalmatian spots are a very interesting feature!
I am very excited about this cross as it is the first time that I work with VTs. I have loved their appearance already for a long time and I hope this spawn might be the start of a quality line of VTs. With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and the finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be darkbody (with maybe some iridescence) with either red, orange or yellow finnage with a chance of dalmatian spots to appear.
