Genetic Locus
« on: October 19, 2012, 06:53:03 PM »
 There are nine active loci at this time..

1) Dark, Marble, gold Marble, gold
2) Zebra, Stripeless
3) Smokey
4) Half Black
5) Albino
6) Blue
7) Veil
8 ) Pearlscale
9) Streaked

Dark (D) incomplete dominant, Gold (g) recessive and Marble (M) incomplete dominant

and soon to be added (pb) for Philippine Blue

Ten active loci at this time..

1) Dark, Marble, gold Marble, gold
2) Zebra, Stripless
3) Smokey
4) Half Black
5) Albino
6) Blue
7) Veil
8) Pearlscale
9) Streaked
10) Philippine Blue

Dark (D) incomplete dominant, Gold (g) recessive and Marble (M) incomplete dominant

Dominate genes are indicated with a capitol letter and the first in the bracket. ex: Stripless - Ghost: S/+ Generally dominate genes express with heterozygous traits.

Recessive genes are indicated with a lower case letter and are second in the bracket. ex: Albino (het) +/a Generally recessive genes do not express in heterozygous form, only in homozygous form.

Heterozygous: One gene (het)

Homozygous: two genes

Some genes do not show unless the fish is homozygous for the gene

Geneotype: What genes the fish carries

Phenotype: What you see as expression as far as color, pattern, and/or finnage.

To this day, there are not any gender specific traits that have been found.

Veiltail
Standard (short fin): +/+
Veil: V/+
Superveil: V/V

Pearlscale:
Flat scales: +/p
Bubble-like Scales: p/p

Smokey
Smokey: Sm/+
Chocolate: SM/SM

Half Black
Silver: +/h
Half Black: h/h

Albino
Silver: +/a
Albino: a/a

Stripeless
Ghost: S/+
Blushing: S/S

Zebra
Z/+
Z/Z double dose or DD

Philippine Blue
Silver: +/pb
Blue: pb/pb

Dark (black)
Lace: D/+
Black or Double Dark (DD): D/D

Marble
M/+
M/M

Gold Marble
Silver Gold Marble: Gm/+
Gold Marble: Gm/Gm
