F1 generally refers to a inherited phenotypic trait. Since all phenotypic traits are based on the genotypic expression, then in reality F1 refers to the genotype. My argument is that the wild-type is a phenotypic/genotypic trait. I could easily argue it the other way around, Im just throwing this out there since Ive heard people say that F1 is an incorrect term in this application. For instance, when we hatch a clutch of gaps from parents from the same cut, then holdback the exceptional ones, breed those, we produce babies that display traits not necessarily representitive of that particular gene pool. Since this man-made trait is abstract, its hard to categorize as an inherited genotypic trait, but isnt it? I know its not something easily seen like albinism, an inherited mutation, but it is still a reference to the snakes inherited genotype. I dont know.
