    New shubunkin cross

    https://youtu.be/upVbucsP17U

    The male is the larger red headed fish and when imported was like a London shubunkin. The tail keeps growing and is now a Bristol type tail. The female is from my Bristol (Parker strain) line.

    After crossing her to a male from her line, I grabbed the Japanese male to get a cross. They are just starting to swim.

    Here's some additional details from the video post:
    A new hybrid line. He's such a wonderful fish (large redhead) and since the female had a few more eggs after doing an incross of the Parker Bristol strain I figured I'd grab a cross with him. He was imported from Japan in 2012. At the time he had a short standard tail but has since developed in to a very nice Bristol type tail.


    The start of a new strain. The male is the larger fish which can was imported from Japan in 2012. He was a one of a kind in the shipment so I've been crossing with various females over the years. I got a good squeeze of the Bristol (Parker) and she was still full of eggs so I grabbed the Japanese bachelor.

    He arrived with a standard short tail but it has bloomed into a lovely Bristol type tail. Here he is in 2012 and the one of a kind Japanese water color original from Kyoto 1908.

    They have hatched and are waiting to swim.

    New shubunkin cross

    Thanks, unfortunately some amorous adults spilled the floating bowl of fry. Better luck next time!

    This same male crossed to maruu Wakins has resulted in a few nice fish.

    This fish is the darkest one in the previous emails. Black will likely all go away and will be a major selection point in the next generations.
