*moved to the correct forum*

I do it on a regular basis as i am trying to unravel the genetic coding for the different colour morphs. In general I dont see an issue with it either. its not like you are crossing different species of hypan which some frown upon. bristlenose are all the same species, just like all humans are the same species, we may look different but we are all the same. look at me, my long term girlfriend is anglo-indian and I can't wait to cross breed lol!

no idea, I havent really had much of a look at the calico ones yet. Hence the new pair i have in my shrimp tank at uni. there is a lot of arguement over the calico gene. I personaly believe that it is some how related to the albino gene and hence a cross will give a split of albino and calicos. However, there are those out there who argue to opposite, saying that it is a dominant gene and related to the brown gene. I honestly dont know but I am looking forward to my first spawn from this new pair of mine Smile

I have had a male calico and a female longfin ABN spawn (not intentionally on my part) and they produced some beautiful fry. I would definately give it a try. I ended up with 4 different types of fry calico BN, calico longfin, ABN and longfin ABN.

just me being picky, i think it must be the scientist in me Laughing they are not hybrids. Hybrids denotes a cross between two species. Calico bristlenose and albino bristlenose are the same species.

a hybrid would be a peppermint crossed with a calico...which would be interesting but impossible.
