in Juni I visited the famous guppybreeder Hans Grossmann in Saxonia. He breeds Snakes of the very rare third blue variety!
This body-base-color ist called "hell blau" (engl.: light blue) in Germany. We changed some fish, so I got some light blue Snakes.
European Blue: rr (homozygot it is able to show red color)
Asian Blue: r²r² (heterozygot you can see the grass-effect- homozygot there ist no red and yellow)
Light blue: r³r³ (homozygot it able to show yellow color)
Sadly only one Female survived the adaptation from the soft acidic saxonian water to our hard basic water in Berlin.
I took pics of the last male together with some Tuxedos to compare the base color.
Here a homozygote light blue Snakeskin (r³r³) at the DGF Show in May, bred by H. Grossmann.
Here is his breeding-room.
