Rough Stripeds are those "non perfect" Striped Motleys. Hard to describe, so let a picture show the difference:

The clear striped one is a Striped Motley, the not-so-clear one the Rough Striped. But it only describes the phenotype and doesn't tell you anything about the genotype.

Thanks a lot, Seriva :)

The not-perfectness is exactly what makes the rough ones so beautiful :mmm:
(Do I recognise the one to the left?? - ha-ha...)
Best wishes,

He's going to be test bred for stripe this year because he's possible het and also ph caramel too so fingers crossed we get some nice butter motleys and butter stripes :)

Well, I don't know if "Rough Striped" is used very often. I don't use it. :)
Selectively bred morphs are often discussed, because everybody has a different opinion about them... Nicely seen here: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=6151 ;)

So I name then only after their genotype (which is the more important thing for me) and if someone sees something special in them they can name them however they want. ^^

But yours would fit into the "Rough Striped" Definition.

I have a Caramel Corn that I have been wanting to sort out what she is for some time. She was sold to me as an aztec but after reading this I think she might be Motley or something. I can't seem to post a pic on here tho. Anyone know where I could send the pic to have it identified?

photos need to be 800 x 600 or less before they can be posted, although some hosts block us from checking the sizes which gives an error message. The best bet for getting photos up is to use Postimage hosting at http://www.postimage.org/ or upload as attachments direct to IV (the size rule applies to both) :thumbs:

she does indeed look motley (rough stripe, pinstripe or whatever!), does she have a plain belly without chequers?

So if you was to pair a visual motley het stripe male to a 'non' motley or stripe female will you get any visual motley or stripes or will they only be 'het' for them? :oops:

The hatchlings would be either het motley OR stripe, you'd have no way of knowing without breeding them.
