1st rule UNIFORMITY: interbreeds in first generation all look alike a
mixture of both parents
2nd rule FIRST SPLITTING RULE: in the following inbreed generation they will
split up 1:2:1 (1 each like one parental part, the 2 (50%) like the
3rd rule SECOND SPLITTING RULE: the second inbreed generation will split
12.5% - 12.5 - 25 - 25 - 12.5 - 12.5. This all is for genetic rcombination
of a binarial character. Phenotypes may not represent this as there are
dominant/recessive genes/allels. The 12.5 will most possibly show up as 2
groups rather than four so it will look phenotypically as rule 2. But the
more genes/alles are combined the more the splitting will be detectable.
But there also may not be any fry because of possible infertility when
interbreeding different strains/locations even within one species. That4s
what biologists have dispute about with genetics - depends on the definition
of what is a species (MAYER 1978 or Cladistic view or Genetic view). Big
topic within certain fish families.
Good luck and let us know the results!
