That's what I've been a bit concerned about as well. I would LOVE to breed to a doubletail, but as I said...mom's thoughts on fish. So that leaves me with the girl (which, RegisteredUser, I will definitely let you know :) It won't be until late summer though) to either one of two VTs, or seeing how the new copper turns out. He may turn out very well, as I've had him less than a week and he was in crappy conditions in the store, but then I don't know the color genetics well enough to tell how this: (when fully healed and, I suspect, grown, not convinced he's entirely mature)
will pair with the girl.

This dork is who I planned to use
My other male, hard to get a picture of his true color, he usually appears more purple.
