Default Pictures of cross bred tropheus

Does anyone have pictures of cross bred tropheus from two very diferent looking adults?

Not like a lufubu and a chiatika mix or two sp. reds. But a T. moori RR X T. Sp. Black Ikola for example?

I know its rare but I also know that they have been known to breed on occasion.

Out of curiosity, I would like to see pictures of the offspring. Or pixtures of any other mixed tropheus.

There is a thread on this forum.

You just have to search for "Crossbreeding tropheus"...

I think that it was RR and Dub

Yeah, Iv seen the threads with pics of the two fish spawning.
Im just curious as to what the offspring would look like. I know with all the people out there with mixed tanks, it has to have happened.

Im guessing people just dont take pics of their mutts and post 'em. But they must be out there.

Just an FYI... I DO NOT keep mixed tanks or encourage crossbreeding of tropheus. I was just thinking about what they would look like and thought someone else had seen some or took pics.

About 5 years ago, before I new much about tropheus. I bought 6 trophs that were labeled tangerine rainbows. I bought them. They looked like a cross between an Ikola and a Bemba. A few had orange bands, a few yellow, and one was almost all yellow with blue eyes. I have some pictures. They lived in a 40 gallon tank for years. Then they spent the summer in my koi pond. Herons and coons ended up eating them.

I think that this thought has crossed most peoples mind. "I wonder"...

For some reason, mixed and hybrids are Completely Shunned in the Hobbist Community of fish, but domesticated dogs and cats were created this way. They are sill mixing Cats with African Servals called "Savannah's"...

But whatever. I woudn't go as far as killing them or selling them. Just would wait until they died off. I woud'nt really ever put my trophs in situation where it would happen anyhow.

I don't think that I have ever even heard of someone destroying hybrids of this nature. I've heard a lot of people say they would though.

This is more like it!

I don't know if I agree with that. I think that if anything, like Mixed dogs, they would have a larger gene pool and more longevity. But then again, I've never really seen someone try and grow out some hybrids. Except my broter in law. He had some Malawi Hybrids between C. Moorii and Red Empress. Looked like Big Red Empresses that were Covered with a Baby Blue Sparkle and Bumps on their heads like the Moorii.
