PostSubject: Fire or Sulfur?   Sun May 26, 2013 1:31 pm

So, is this a Fire, Sulfur, or Both?

I have read that some are saying Fire and Sulfur are one in the same, is this true? does anyone know? I know the super of both is Black Eyed Lucy, but the same can be said for Mojave and Lesser, but are they also the same?

Hi Jennifer. I have a few sulfur things going and am happy to find an excuse to yap about it Smile

Sulfur and fire have long been suspected to be the same gene but some are noticing differences in certain combos. I'll have to get on fauna to find the link, but I posted a thread showing a few fire combos that were different when substituted with sulfur, some of which I'll produce this year and hope I can support.

David Ried ending up finding the original sulfur in a pet store, I believe, and states it produces higher orange BEL's. I have a super sulfur poss mojave that he produced and displays a faded yellow rather than orange. I'm hoping we can find out in a few months when this guy proves out:

I don't own any fires so I haven't been able to compare in person, but sometimes I can tell the difference and sometimes I can't. I think both genes vary greatly. I think the only way to tell if yours is a fire or sulfur, is to wait and notice differences between similar combos and compliment with that gene. Vanilla creams are one of those combos that are, so far, very noticable when using fire or sulfur. I cannot tell the difference between fireflies and sulfur pastels.

I have the super sulfur poss mojave, a pastel sulfur and normal sulfur. I also have expected clutches from the SSPM being paired with a lemonblast, super vanilla and pastel girl. I'll post pics of what I get over the summer.

Thanks for the info! This guy was infact purchases as a Sulfur Smile Do you know if anyone has crossed a Fire with a Sulfur to see if the combo still produced Black Eyed Lucy? I was thinking of picking up a Fire female to test the theory!

Not many people have tried it because the offspring are hard to label, but I've seen a few posts about the pairing with no follow up. One guy I know did it and lost the clutch. What are the odds lol.

I've seen some of Joe's disco combos, I believe those are out of my price range though?
