Here are pictures of the parents and the fry showing how they vary from a few solid back to normal. A fellow on a South African forum hand the same results but though selective breeding for the past year now has a pure black strain.

Good Question. They are a strange genetic cocktail. Most spawns a weak and often no fry reach free swimming. A pair of black produced about 50 fry. About 40% black and 60% gold. Where did the gold come from? It must be from several generations back. The gold are stronger and growing faster. The golds are both sexes and the Black appear to be all males. They will soon be old enough to breed and a mixed pair should give more blacks. I may have just hit a lucky par originally.

 

I have crossed a black male to an electric blue female. All the 3 week old fry are the same shade of blue. A spawn of these siblings could give me a strong strain of blacks. They are at least making things interesting. A fellow in Africa had problems aswell  but now has a good strain of blacks.

That's amazing! Can't wait to see the yield from those new pairs.

Some of the blue- blacks are darker than the others. They may be a lucky break as they show more of a gene for black.
