To the untrained eye that just looks like a really good-looking lemonblast. But it’s not. It is a 3 gene animal. It is a genetic granite lemon pastel pinstripe. Also known as the granite blast! Pretty straight forward right? Well here is another kicker… What I have yet to figure out is whether or not it is carrying a vanilla type gene. Look at the picture below and tell m what you see?
Nope that’s not a firefly on the left. It’s supposedly just a genetic granite pastel. But why is it so blushed out like a firefly you may ask? That I am not sure of yet. But if you take a look at the other two animals in the clutch they both are extremely blushed out as well. What I find really interesting is the normal on the right. I personally do not think he is a normal. He looks like a cross between a vanilla, fire, granite, special something. I think I have isolated the gene in its single gene form with that normal looking male.
Here is what I know. After two clutches with this gene we definitely have a genetic granite thing going on with my lemomblasts and pastels. Whether or not there is also a vanilla gene at work I am unsure of.. Reason being is in the first clutch I hatched a genetic granite pastel but his blushing is nowhere near what the pastel is in the photo above. So this all leads me to believe there are 2 new genes in this line. A genetic granite and a vanilla type gene. More breeding needs to be done to completely figure this out.
Have I lost you yet? LOL If you like dinking as much as I do and want in on this project let me know. I have way too many males then I need for it. Plus if I let a male or two go to the right breeder we could expand our gene pool and really take this project forward with gusto!
