I think another good example of trying hard to maintain a true strain, but
losing something in the fish is perfectly shown in the Labidotropheous
Fellebournii (sp?) and there loss of the fatty upper lip in captive
breeding. Also consider the Gold coloring in the Silver Tip Tetra. It is
never passed on to the F1 generation, Some Tetra nuts even contemplate if
it might be caused by some type of parasite in the wild. Just more to
ponder on.
