Re: What would this combo produce?

Out of that pairing you would get pastels( line bred normals that are clean), super hypos and hypos. I don't think it;s entirely appropriate to label a hypo a pastel, but lots of people do it. If the hypo poss jungle was in fact a jungle, the litter would yield jungles as well. If I were in your position, I would consider looking for hypo jungles that had another visual gene present so at least the babies produced would be 100% het. The poss het percentages that you posted will not yield anything for at least a generation and that's only provided they posses the genes in the first place...a long journey to prove out something like that. Sugar is a really nice line to deal with, but once outcrossed, the babies in my opinion can not be labelled as sugar line. Jungles are usually easy to tell with a practiced eye, and het squaretail usually has many markers as well. Hopefully that answers your question.
