Here are two videos of our Silverado population. Best viewed in HD.

Very interesting and cool! The males seem to get their coloration pretty late in development. What kind of tail development have you seen compared to Orchids?

I added a new video of the Silverado population. I tucked the wafer down into a plant display so the males had to be more still to get at it.

Caju, thanks for your comments. The Silverado color patterns are very interesting. The way I understand it, Phil's fish populations are identified by patterns that are passed on by the male. He does this to avoid inbreeding. The females are randomly selected from his entire Cumana stock. So every fish looks a little different. The tail patterns of this Silverado population are pretty random. Some have patterns that resemble peacock and orchid. Hopefully the population will throw some non-silver examples that will show the color patterns hidden under the silver.
