(Odm. maculatum x Odcdm. Tiger Ham burhen)

Well I must be honest and say that this hybrid never really impressed me! The Odont world is full of yellows and while I love Odm. maculatum hybrids when the species is crossed to a complex Odont, this one left me cold. I do have a dog in the fight as we made a similar hybrid which I liked much better, Odm. Anna-Claire, where the other parent was a tetraploid clonal mutation of Odm. Geyser Gold.

Neither Tiger Barb nor Anna-Claire have really bred on and something named Wils. St. Anthony of Egypt by that awful Lawless fellow was the most interesting hybrid to appear from Tiger Barb. Some of the St. Anthony of Egypt seedlings were very dark and had well-branched inflorescences Nothing of note from Odm. Anna-Claire. The Anna-Claires were hot for a time in Holland but as the grex always singlespiked, in today’s potted plant market this was the kiss of death and it has vanished from the scene, as has Tiger Barb, except when offered as over-cloned and mutated product that keeps popping up at Asian laboratories.
