I did consider that the color differences might be due to the conditions of the tank, the food, spawning color and such.

And yet, I still hope that the differences may be genetic. After all, even organisms living in relatively small areas can possess different characteristics.
(And there are always freaks of nature :) )

Mine were really quite pale when I first got them, and they were hiding and stuff. But now they go around like they own the place (which they do), and have brightened, yet are still a pale gold ( and with of course, those gorgeous gold spots)

Anyway, I guess time will tell.

I'm also noticing that the males get a paler, gold stripe running down the top of their spine when spawning. (I think that rather than their spine turning gold, it's just that the stripe becomes more noticeable because their sides turn blacker.)

I have a male with red on the mouth he is also a little larger than the others 3 cm, I know this is a poor photo but you can see the red mouth, he is the dominant male and very difficult to photograph
Image
I personally haven't seen the red mouth in any others (hopefully his offspring will) is this common?

wow...stunning male Ged!!!

I think some of the colour variations seen on the net can also been put down to lighting and the camera used.

I agree I was so happy when he started breeding I am hoping his offspring aren't so skittish, but I have to say he is a good dad he protects his territory so well he actually keeps the other fish from the eggs,eats his share no doubt and have seen him eating fry but keeps the others from getting too many I got 30 this week.

That a great haul of fry in a week!! What do you feed the youngsters on and where do you rear them? What is the tank set up? I ask because I'm sure mine were courting already this morning in and out of the moss. I don't have a second tank available just yet. I'm in no rush but would love to breed and rear these lovely fish.

I am now having a second hatch this week, I have 100+, there has been fry everyday this week.
I start them I this(8 gallon) I find it easier to feed the in this tank, the food tends to stay suspended and settle on the side. I used to hate that, now it serves a good purpose, there is a life lesson somewhere there.
Image
I added more moss they feed on the small "bugs" that live on it, also I used frozen baby brine shrimp,also a staple fry food any staple you can grind fine enough will do.
I move them to this tank after a week or two a 10 gallon
Image
I also added more moss to this

Thanks...lovely tanks!!

Do you add a pair into your 8gallon and then remove them after the spawn then?

No the adults 2 males 6 females are in this tank I have to remove them, the fry that is, not ideal I imagine it shocks them a bit, I maintain consistent water parameters in both. I am afraid moving the adults will stop the mating, but once I get a good stock I will set them up in a rectangular 50 I have and use a divider Image
