    The fade gene and leucism, which causes pink convicts, are 2 totally different things.

    Let me try to explain. The gene that causes pink color in convicts is recessive, meaning that if you cross the pink con with a texas the texascons will all carry the pink gene but they won't show the pink gene. If you breed 2 of those hybrids together (if they were fertile) you would get about 25% of the fry to express the pink gene, 50% carriers of the pink gene, and the rest would not have the pink gene at all. But the hybrids probably won't have fertile males so you'd have to cross a hybrid female to a male pink con, then 75% of those would show the pink gene and the test would be pink gene carriers. You following?

    They teach this stuff in highschool you know...


    Im not really sure how the fading gene that comes from some amphilophus species (same gene found in red texas) works though. I just know that when you bred a fader to a non fader, some offspring will fade, I think, I honestly haven't looked into faders that much. Lol

    Mr. Know it all, first off i know how recessive genes work i make 75k a year selling investment quality ball pythons and leopard geckos, secondly im not argueing with the fact that the pink convict and texas will produce faders but he was saying that the texas doesnt have a fade gene and i was saying if that was true when u breed a texas to a blood parrot or red devil you wouldnt get any faders. So he is wrong when you breed a texas to blood parrot or red devil you get faders the first generation.

    No Im laughing at this thread. What Brandon said about Leucistism is right. And yes the fader gene comes from a lot Amphiophus and a couple other species of fish outside it. But creating Red Texas isnt as simple as you think, a lot of people fail to grasp that.

    Im not in anyway saying that they will make a red texas or fader i was just guess, I love convicts and when i bred a pink convict to a pure regular black convict i produced pink and black offspring. And the black convict was pure( not carrying pink gene) i bred it to the pink convict and produce some pink and black offspring so how is the pink convict gene recessive? Or is it only recessive when cross breeding?

    Ernie, are You Bumble Boy on fauna classifieds?
    I can believe you breeding ball pythons and leopard geckos but making 75k a year, that's a little hard to believe.
