Three Different Lines of Blue Silver!!!

Post  Ghipsi on Fri 24 Feb 2012, 00:59

I am happy to say my hubby picked up a new SD Card & Recharable batteries for my camera so I can take piccys again Very Happy

Thought I would show 3 different lines of Blue Silvers (AKA Blue Angels, pb/pb) I have growing in the fish house Very Happy

Singapore Blue these little-uns are about 5p bodysize, have sold the parents now but still have a younger batch growing on.



Next has been bred from Dave's stunning Wild x Singapore Blue youngsters:



And the next youngsters are only small yet and will be anouther couple of weeks before they are ready. Mum is one of Dave's Wild x Singapore Blue and dad is one of Johns Titanium Blues. These confused me at first but it seems that those carrying the singapore blue genes colour up first & those that must be Titanium Blue dominant take a while longer to colour up:

All very nice Lisa. Some good wide dorsals in there too. The difference between the titanium blue and Singapore blue is quite noticeable.I would say the colouring of my babies is very similar to the youngsters in pics 3 and 4. How big/old are those particular fish?

Btw I'm glad you got your camera sorted. They are great pics!

Hi Lisa,
Some nice clear shots of some very nice little babies there.
Although the fish from the third batch do appear to be rather different in colour, it's worth noting both their younger age, and the different lighting and/or background. Because blue is a "structural colour" which results from the refraction and reflection of light rather than from any blue pigment, the same fish can look very different when viewed from a different angle, under different lighting, or with different background colour. For example, the green light reflected off plants can make a significant difference. It will be interesting to see if the colour difference remains as they all develop.

I do have a little issue arround the use of the terms "Singapore blue" and "Titanium blue", which I feel could cause a degree of confusion, in what is, for some, an already confusing subject.....
But thinking about it, rather than hijacking this thread, I'll start another one....

Bred from Daves' stunning Wild X Singapore Blues, Dave (baldyman) breeds some stunning stock. I saw the some of the parents' batch mates when they were 10p size and had to get some as they were stunning, and have produced stunning youngstock, I have a few breeding in my fish house as the wild lines are realy adding something special Very Happy
Thanks, Lisa
