Erma and Hal use to have Giants.. from Surat? They were mostly a red type and not quite as "tubular" - long bodied as a couple of yours.

I had purchased a Giant or King from Petco a year or so ago and thought about crossing him into my plakat line for size but decided against it . Ended up with a real dippy head-could not see it in the Petco jar at the time..

where did you get them from?

Your mustard gas girl looks like a longfin.. the one in the plastic container.. the male .. a red-blue male plakat..

If the girl is a longfin.. unless she carries plakat .. all of the babies will be longfins and carry the plakat gene..

They will probably be mostly red-blue.. unless the male carries the gene for yellow that is called nonred.

Is that a female plakat in the first picture with King "K" ?

You will probably get many combinations of colors.. you just don't know..

To get the "yellow" in mustard gas the male has to carry the nonred gene also..

I know of someone that crossed black/yellow siblings and ended up with solid reds. So what they say is supposed to happen genetically ... not always..

Pam .. And you will only get plakat if she is a longfin with a shortfin gene.

I found a "giant" female in a Petco one day, about a year before the "King" line came out. Must of been a fluke. It was before I got into breeding though, and she got something weird in my community tank, and died. :(
