Genetic Powerhouses ~ Ivory Clutch

After what seemed like an age, the clutch laid in July by our Ivory female has begun to hatch with the best possible outcome!

I am happy to confirm that this was another split clutch sired by both Indonesian Sunfire and Golden Child het albino males.

The eggs contain; Platinums, Platinum Golden Child 50% poss het albinos and Platinum Indonesian Sunfires (a world first breeding from a completely new bloodline of sunfire).

Platinum hatchlings produced from an ivory parent tend to be markedly brighter than those that come from a standard platinum sire/dam, so as expected, these are some very impressive babies with a lot of genetic potential.

Despite being a large clutch, many of these double co-dom hatchlings will be retained for future breeding stock here at Imperial Retics – they are genetic powerhouses!

Worlds first !

In 2011 I imported a small group (2.1) of Sunfires that were CB out in Indonesia at a private breeding facility.

These were completely unrelated to the sunfires we commonly see in the hobby, are much more intensely coloured with floating tails more akin to a super Sunfire.  Just as importantly, they bring much needed new blood and genetic diversity to the hobby.

We have bred the prettiest male Indo Sunfire to an Imperial Retics CB Purple albino female and are now hatching the worlds first Indo Sunfire het albinos!

There will be very limited numbers for sale, as the clutch was very small and all males will be retained for future projects

35 Viable Eggs

Very nice clutch of 35 viable eggs and no slugs from our first time breeder 2008 Platinum Tiger!

The results are so much better when first time females have an extra couple of years maturity on them. 

She was bred to various males; lavender albino, lavender motley and lavender sunfire so will be some nice multi-gene babies whatever the outcome!

As always, once the hatchlings are shed, sexed and feeding, they will make it over to our Available page, so please keep checking back
