Question Picking mates

So I got an EE today and I want to breed him this summer. I found a few EE females but their colors would dominate his. So say I breed him with a HMP would I get the big ears like I want or not? I just really love EE's.

You wont get EE if you breed one to a normal fish. You would have to breed back to the father or sibling cross to get EE back

I am starting to work on EEs myself, have a couple pairs.

EE is a very recessive gene, so even with both parents being EEs you will get few babies with actual big pectorals. They will have the genes, but most won't have the actual big pectorals.

As mentioned before, you would have to breed daughter to father to increase the chances of big pectorals being born, and so forth.

What colors are the females and the male you have?

I don't have a female yet but here is my boy Vanilla Ice. I'm trying to find him a girl to breed with.

That girl is a salamander PK. I've seen it on AQ before. If mixed with a solid yellow male it's likely you will get some strange-looking offspring.
