Hi everyone
Can you breed L236SW just them self or must be added standard L236 with them?
I can't find any info.

Why would you want to do this? Breeders have to do a lot of work using selective breeding over multiple generations to create a super white line where this trait is fairly fixed. If you breed a super white with a regular 236 all you are doing is going in the opposite direction.

Therefore, it is important not to mix the super whites and the regulars, Considering the price difference between the two, I would think this is to be avoided at all costs.

I keep 3 distinct groups of 236, one of which is super white. All three are kept in their own species tank and they are never intermixed. This includes the two different groups of regular 236 that are never mixed.
