I believe it is caused by inbreeding. I heard that breeding these fish dont allway give offspring that look the same. Seems like simple Mendilian genetics where this coloration is expressed as an homozygous reccessive gene. But that is just my guess.

If it is inbreeding isn't it the white tiger issue again?

Inbreeding raised the chance of the offspring getting both recessive genes and thus expressing them. XX+xx= Xx+Xx+Xx+Xx, Find a Xx+Xx and you get Xx, XX, and xx, I am just ranting now, nevermind me!

I was just arguing that with Clown nut. IMO I would rather be flashed again by some crazy guy in a camper (inside joke).

They are snowflake clowns- being shipped in from Europa. I see them on the wholesale list as pairs for $199.00..

My understanding is that you have a better chance getting a snowflake from breeding two, but its only a chance. If it were for sure then people would breed millions and they would not be worth much.

Well there are some in the club and I think seeing them in person may change your opinion and it may not... but I think they are pretty sweet.

I saw in person and it didn't change my opinion. I would have to think with some people the thought of being rare makes the look prettier but everyone has an opinion. I guess the full circle I've come in the hobby, I don't get hung up on the rare or the hard to keep challenge anymore. I'm just in it to enjoy now......
