1. Marble with either a gold or gold marble gene. I thought both it's parents were homozygous for pb which would make it a blue, but a couple of it's siblings turned out looking like gold marbles rather than platinum marbles, which causes me to question my ID on the parents. If she's not a blue marble she's definitely het. for the gene, she's also got a zebra gene and possibly a stripeless in the mix.

2. Marble, either M/M or M/g

3. Veiltail Smokey pinoy ghost.

4. My favourite koi, his body shape looks a little odd in the photo, because he's in the process of turning, and his tale is bent sideways.

5. One of My Manacapuru x domestic silvers

6. Next generation from a pairing of two of 5's siblings.

sadly the only one of that quality I have, but I'm making progress, slowly.

Manacapuru is a region in Brasil, reasonably close to Manaus (a major export centre for tropical fish). Manacapuru "Red Backs" come from this region, some say that the Red Backs are only found in Lake Manacapuru whilst the fish in the Rio Manacapuru have a similar body shape without the red shoulder.
