Phenotypes:

  • “Normal” fish (+/+ or pb/+)
  • Blue (pb/pb)

Paraiba – has two copies of “pb” and two copies of “S” (stripless) and no dark (“D”) gene
Pinoy – has two copies of “pb” and and at least one dark (“D”) allele
Pinoy Paraiba – has two copies of “pb” and two copies of “S” (stripless) and at least on dark (“D”) allele
