Hi. I'm new here. My coral mickey mouse platy had 60 babies on 07/17/07 and the daddy is a gold/red wagtail. Will the fry take after the daddy or be some like him and some of the mother, etc. I can't make out any mickey mouse hats on their tails yet. They are still clear colored with a little orange I think towards the head.

Thank you.

You're likely to get a really mixed bunch

Yeah, its hard to discover dominant and recessive genes in livebearers. Some professional breeders can do it, but if you just throw a couple together.

I have a yellow cobra and a green cobra pair that have bred, and from what i am beginning to see, the babies are AWESOME looking already!
