Last weekend, I was elated to discover a few jet black Dragon Eye Pearlscales amongst the batch of majority grayish-green fries. Finally, after 4 years, I got the black colour that I wished for in my Dragon Eye Pearlscales! Black fishes process a mystic charisma that never fails to captivate me.

This particular sub-line of black Dragon Eye Pearlscales is derived from a stable bloodline of Chinese Short Tail Dragon Eyes, a strain that has very stable black and capable of achieving a good size. I hope that there are both sexes in the few precious specimens and their black colour would not fade to orange eventually. If I am lucky, I should have more black fishes in the next breeding season.

Breeding livestock is like juggling - if we become too focus on one feature, we may risk losing another feature. Luck also plays a part because there is always a limited number of combination that the breeder can attempt.
