There might be possibilities of getting that color you want... MIKEV1... But if both of them come from strict background coloration... like that male came from Black male x Black female.. and Female came from Red male x red female... Then the colors are going to be stronger with the RED than Black..

If the male has some red genes in him from like roads ago.. still might not be enough to get full black or the coloration you wanted.

Nothing is impossible ... Though with my breeding pair they seemed to have a background of many fin types and colors... so their babies came out being very varied from each other...

So meaning that ... IMO if the male and female was purely bred with its own coloration.. then the colors of the fry are not going to be mixy matching.. high chances of the fry looking inbetween instead of having full red and full black on one body... But Hay!! its not impossible... and this is from my experience... to help you understand abit with the colors.. I guess...

The whole batch may come out having full RED rays and full black tail fan... That Would be AWESOME...!!!

Or how about one looking like this??? http://media.photobucket.com/image/r...lackhmpkm4.jpg

Oh I see. I'm pretty sure that these are not pure breed so they may come varied than similar.

Oh ok.. Well to me that might be a pro.. because I want to see different looking fry... with cool colors.. yet need to have a good structure and hopefully not deformed...

Urs look like a cool breeding color to try...

Either way, you should still produce some black body with red fins . . . I did - and I didn't even introduce reds. It was a Super Black x Black orchid (from black copper x green drgn with a tint of red on her anal fin). F2 gave me some black body with very dark/blackish red fins.

I'm quite interested at the outcome. This should make for some good looking offspine and is worth the try.
