  Scalar after 2006
 

Pterophyllum scalare;


This is a male F1 yellow/gold back scalar from
link; Tocantins river in Amazon.

I was breeding this specie some times in 2010 and was very pleased that I after so many years have a quality P. scalar in my aquariums again. It was so good to again see the natural behavior of this species. It is so much bad mix scalar on the marked today so it can be hard to find quality scalar like this stock with so natural beautiful pattern, colors and behavior.

This phenomenon is named Xanthopterin how gives youngster without black pigment. They are not albino and have black eyes. We know also this from some other aquarium species, but this phenomenon is also well known by breeders of canary and budgie birds.
