Rili cross with cherry?

Postby justanotherkid » Mon May 12, 2014 8:24 am

I've got some rilis which were culled from blue velvets and they are really lacking in blue. I also have a cherry which has been born with really strong blue hues, would it be reasonable to breed the rilis with the blue velvet gene with a red cherry with better blue colours?

Anyones guess I think. But I think you'll get a mixture of offspring. I think the next step after that is to cull and pick the best ones for the next generation of breeding.

Yeah, hopefully the blue phenotype will show up in some of the shrimplets. Would the red rili be recessive or dominant to the red cherry allele? And would the blue velvet be recessive or dominant to the rili and/or red cherry shrimp? Hopefully I used the correct terminology :)

The rili gene would be recessive and the blue velvet gene also recessive.

I think if you cross them you will have many wild types come up. Its only in the 2nd generation onwards where you will once again see the recessive genes pop up.
