Orchid x Platinum Black ? Possible ?

Hey guys :D , say if I was to breed an Orchid HMPK male to a Platinum Black HMPK female, what do you guys think the outcome of the frys will be? Their colors? more platinum looking? possibly marbles? This just popped into my head while I was looking around Aquabid Thanks .

I forgot the mention , Heres my Orchid HMPK male *flash was on*



What if I was to breed him to this female ?


Shes a Plakat, her body is normally black but shes stressed, I just recently transferred her from her little cup into a big pickle jar for conditioning. Her color is REALLY NICE . IF I did this pair , would I get more HMPK's or PK's ? and would the frys still have the nice black body(possibly some red wash) and iridescent blue colors?

she's an orchid, not a platinum, so i'm guessing the babies would be orchids as well.

What do you mean by "platinum black"? The female looks orchid to me. So you'd probably mostly get PK orchids.

a black platinum is black-finned with a white DS body, and possibly some black marbling, like my HMPK Jack:

I know she is but I'm referring to different female not the one in the picture.

black orchid x black dragon = My guess would be; orchids, black copper, copper, partial dragon, plus what ever hidden genes.
