    Enchi Gene

    So my BP came yesterday and he is an Enchi Pastave.. One thing I have noticed that didn't show up in the pictures I got from the breeder are the yellows on him.. They are outstanding..This picture really doesn't do it justice.. Is that the Enchi gene? He is a little over 300 grams right now, will he get even more colorful(yellow) as he gets older?

    could be, I have a super pastel enchi and I've noticed that the pastel and super pastel's on their own tend to usually brown out (which my girls back is doing), the enchi influence in mine is keeping a super bright nice yellow and whites are coming in.

    i have two Pastel Mystic Enchis, and their colors pretty much remained the same as they got older. They did not fade, but kept nice crisp colors, especially the yellows.

    It's a combination of the pastel and tthe enchi most likely

    Enchi amps up yellows in a big way. It is pretty much a requirement for me if I am trying to make bright animals. It tends to work a lot better than pastel especially as the animal ages. Interestingly enough enchi, like phantom tend to be ugly as a single gene. When you add them to something else is when the magic happens.
