I'd go with the dragon female. her rays are better - more rays and balanced fins. Hopefully you'll get fry with at least 4 ray branching - HM.
You should get half dragons, coppers, green, plus daddy's color (most of them should be multi red)

Is that your giant female.
If so, no regular male can be breed with her.
3"+ female can't be breed with 3"+ long fin
Their body is total different in size
You size the body up when breeding not the total length of the fish
Male should always be bigger

Ya thats what I figured, but I thought I should atleast add her to the line up, probably will try the black girl, since I believe the 2 red girls to be rose tail, and would love to get some red and black devils

Do u know what line is your black female from
If it's a melano female it just a waste of time to breed
But its pretty to keep
If it's not
Your not going to get any hm
Your male don't have a full D spread and your female is a little short from a D to
You'll get a lot of delta n super delta

Its not a melano female, Bettas Rule has already spawned her and gotten over 200 fry, and then sold her to me, so NONE of my females will work?

She is a melano, but she isn't sterile because she doesn't have 100% melano genetic makeup. From the picture it looks like she has some steel blue iridescence, or perhaps copper. This is common. Because melano is recessive, if you bred her with this male you'd proabby get emerald/turqoise iridescent, some with deep red fins.

She may be a red copper, or a steel blue with red wash based melano. Either way, should render some gorgeous fry. ;)

Curlyfatbottom seems to think that her and my male would only make deltas and super deltas , no halfmoons :( I love super deltas, but would love to get a few halfmoons if this is true, I was under the impression that she had a full 180 degree spread
