Maybe...to retain the dark fins as they mature. I can only guess at this time.  2c2 huh

....No...you wrote "".Koi x Platinum Sealpoint. That would give you Gm/Gm (or Gm/+) s/s bg/bg..""
 
so a koi would have to be .Koi x Platinum Sealpoint. That would give you Gm/Gm (or Gm/g) s/s bg/bg.....not  Gm/Gm (or Gm/+) S/S bg/bg...

Youíre right. I thought you were talking about the gold part of the BSP to retain the dark fins as they get older. Has to be Gm/g (Gm/Gm)  to be a Koi is right. |^|

The lack of stripes has traditionally meant a S/S gene, but at this point I am not sure you even need the S/S gene.  I think the bg/bg gene pretty much does the same thing as the S/S. Neither of my breeders has a Stripeless gene and I get BSPs.

You will get BSP regardless of the stripeless gene....as long as you have a D and bg/bg.

The ones I have...stripes are still present, except itís reverse.

Well the last original BSP I bought from Joel is no more.  They spawned yesterday and as I was writing the spawn number and date on the tank....Thunk...he hit the glass a ton. Don't know if he got spooked or was defending the spawn.  Unusual for him to defend as it is usually the female that attacks when I pull a spawn. I left him laying on the bottom still breathing as I thought he might recover. Went down this morning, he didn't recover.  No more baby BSPs for a while.

Thanks guys. Yea it is sort of a downer. But I have lots of his kids around all I have to do is wait until they start breeding, if they ever do. Definitely won't be selling any until (or if) I can get a couple good breeding pairs.
