  • Endler Project

    I'm working on a breeding project right now. Thought I'd log my progress.

    I'm trying to breed Peacock Enlders with more Chili traits. Right now I have 3 Peacock males with some female Chili's. I'll be line breeding them for a few generations. So I'll be breeding the fathers with their daughters then grand daughters. I'm going to then try to breed the 4th generation female offpsring with Chili males. I'll probably have to go back and forth like this for a while.

      Sounds like an interesting project. You might want to take pics when color develops and see what the strains are

        Very interesting, how many generations can you breed fathers to daughters, granddaughters etc. before significant defects are common?

          Usually 7 or more. From what I've read, when you get to about generation 5, the male offspring will be almost exact copies of the father.

            Fun project! Keep us updated on how it is going.

            Also, those numbers are correct. Usually 7 generations is when you begin to see deformities but that is not always true. Also if you are trying to breed a specific coloration, take electric blue rams for example, you have to continue breeding afterward 7generations and culling anything with deformities.

                      I had a peacock in with my Chili Endler tank. Looks like he was a frisky little bugger and made some good babies. I had tried to pull some virgin females from the Chili tank. I got a peacock baby that's got a lot of orange coming in. I'm excited

                        The offspring are still considered N class, right?

                          This guy came from the Chili community. This is the start of what I'm looking for. I need to develop a more peacock markings on the tail. Still, this is a step in the right direction, I'm happy with it

                            Cute little guy! I can see the start of the peacock markings on his tail, this will be interesting to follow.
