For best results you could also pair it to a white or yellow black, giving you carriers for the next season plus another class to show in! cheers

Thanks for the reply. I have a friend how has white blacks which he got from a pair of red black mosaics (must have been carriers) and might get a pair or two from him. So if i have a white black cobalt or red black cobalt i could cross them over?

If I am reading the post correctly and your friend has Mosaic Red Blacks and has produced Recessive White Blacks.
Now this is where it can get a little confusing.
If you are going to attempt to White Black Cobalts then you must remember what the the White Blacks have been bred from
[ ie: Mosaic Red Blacks] so in my oppinion what he has produced is Mosaic Reccessive White Blacks although there will be no evidence of Mosaic.

I say this as this is what happened to me, but I didn't know until after I had bred from my Reccessive White's.


I hope this helps
