She is a bi-color, not black and should be fine. When breeding blacks the darker the female, the more problems you have. I prefer to breed more charcoal girls. Have no problems with them.

You need to get the irid out of the body to have a nice clean bicolor. Though a pretty combo color wise, will not be competitive against a fish of equal quality that has more contrast.. black and red are both dark. Black and yellow, or blue and white are high contrast and will have an edge competition wise.

Thats great advice, thanks!

would white and red be a better contrast or is that combo too common?
