You can create your own bloodline. That's part of the fun. Your first generation may be a bit of a surprise but after that it will start to become more stable. Do you have a particular color or tail type in mind?

I currently have a pair of crown tails I purchased at Petsmart...they were the smallest ones i could find that had the best looking finnage...the male is red with some purple on the inner tail and the female is a variety of blues... their babies would be complete mutts haha...

Absolutely. I'm working on several lines of HMPK that are all sorta interchangeable. Yellow, black copper, black gold, red/white/blue, metallic HMPKDT, and pastels.

I'm aiming for show fish after several spawns that I used to get the hang of it.

IMO there's no fun in buying and breeding a sibling pair from someone else's line... Yes, you will get predictable, possibly high quality results... But there isn't any creativity or surprises.

I like to start with two unrelated fish with good finnage and nice color to start lines. To do this you need a working knowledge of the genetics, though... So you don't put a red fish with a blue fish and be sad when you get blue fish with red wash like every fish at the petstore.
