Also, you write "Through proper breeding and rearing,"-what exactly is it that could be influential on the coloration of this fish through the "rearing" of the fish? I am most interested in the genetics required to produce this color variation if possible. I'm wondering if it might be from a platy X Helleri? Are there any members who know what parents were used to create the first Chocolate Mollys? Also, I have noticed that there is now a Red Eye Chocolate Balloon Platy on the market, perhaps this is a piece of the puzzle? I dont particularly care for the Balloon forms, and wondering if these breed true or perhaps there is a % born with "normal" shaped body?
