MY ALBINO LABIDO PROJECT

Post by vinman on Thu Jul 08, 2010 6:53 pm

About 3 years ago I had picked up some albino lads from a pet store. I grew them up and I could never get the 2 females to breed to my wild males and they eneded up kicking the bucket. The male I got to breed to a electric yellow female.
I grew up the young but they were kinda dull looking. as they grew up they got more color. I realy think the albino labs have not been refined as a strain. I really feel they need a few more genarations back crosses to good yellow lab stock. Most albinos Mbuna in the hobby are hybrids. Any whos I never got any big spawns out of the females even though the females produced nice clutch size with other males. I think all I got in 3 spawns were about 10 fish out of that a few died as I was growing them up. I ended up with all males and one female. I sold all the extra males off and kept 3 for myself and the one female.
They bred last month and I got a small clutch of 2 normal possibile hets for albino which I dumped into the tank with the parents. They spawened the other day and I striped them today and got about 10 wigglers 4 albino and about 6 normal possibile hets. They same day this pair spawned my other male het for albino the brother to this male spawned with a electric yellow female I got off ratuge from this forum.
Being the father is carring the albino gene ( het ) the female was not that means all the fry only have a 50% chance of carring the albino gene. I will breed the albino males I get from the first pr and breed it to the females from the second pr. I will also cross the male albinos to electric yellow and any female albinos to my F1 Lions Cove males . Here are some pic's of the het for albino pair

No Vinman, these are the whites not Albino.

Nice ones you have.
I am going to take these back to the guy I got them from.

Very kind of you but like I stated they will only take me back in my project. I have electric yellows and F1 lions Cove I breed off my wild adults. I'm going for a Electric Yellow fish with white face and fins with red eyes.. That is why I'm using F1 and Electric yellow stock. Can you just imange a Electric Yellow Ladido with deep solid black fins & steel blue black face like the wild stock. Here is a pic of some of the Wild Lions Cove yellow labs. As the wild fish got older the Steel blue black face and some melanin overwash on the body delveloped. It varried in all 3 males that I had, Even the color of the females was different from a yellow /green to bright gold




In this video there are wild Caught and F1 Lions Cove yellow Labs

Again I get kicked in the butt . I did a water change today and the air line tubing came off the tumbler and some fry got in the tube . Between the airling comming off and the fry feasting on the wilggelers most of my wilgglers are dead. This was a big blow in a few projects. I had the 4 albino yellow labs, Albino red OB zebra crossed to cherry red zebra. het albino yellow lab crossed to electric yellow, Ps Minutus Nkhata Bay
