Another Blue Star-development...

From my Blue Star-colony I have previously gotten some specimens with a nice white pattern in the caudalfin:

Recently I spotted something different again; one with more red in the pattern. Quite nice! Still, only one specimen that looks like this. I don't have space free for experimenting so for now it just keeps the other company.

Crossing strains...

In september 2013 I got some P. wingei from Phillip Voisin. The Cumana Center City-collection he did along with his friends has really given the hobby a boost with new patterns. Among other fish, I got this one from Phil:

I really like the red colour and the black spots along the back. Currently it is housed in my Center City-colony. I hope more of these will pop up over the next months!
But for a short while I kept this male with some Cumana 2006 "Lime Green" females. What came out of that? A couple if different types; most looks like the one below:

Quite "common-looking" peacock-type. But there are some others in the mix as well:

I especially like the ones with the white ring around the peacock-dot and will try to fix that along with the red body colour. Could be a really nice strain!

Campoma-list updated!

The list of my Campoma phenotypes has been updated with numbers for each phenotype.

A little update on the Availability list and Links as well.

Saturday I hope to have a good evening with the camera in my fishroom. A lot of fish and shrimps to photograph!
