Newly Hatched fry = baby fish that just hatched

That's normal. They will color up as they get older. Some may look darker than other. BTW what's the parent's color?

Yes it normal because it like a family tree there a parent that blue in the family tree I think the blue gene stronger than the female gene so you probably won't get any the color you you want in the male gene but the fry are really pretty

Copper and turquoise looks "white" or light colored when very young. While Royal blue (not sure about steel blue) tend to look dark. As they get older, they will color up and look much darker.

Copper is recessive against base irid colors. You will only, if at all, get a handfull of coppers when you cross them to irids.
