Well, here's what I think...
You girls are petstore betttas, right?
It really doesn't matter how they look, you most probably will get an array of colors and fin types in your spawn... and I'm not talking about pretty fins
If you're spending so much money (yes, $50 will NOT get you ready) in breeding bettas, feeding fry, raising fry, finding homes... all of that... then, why not get a good quality pair and start off on the "right" track?
I was tempted to breed my beautiful petstore HM pastel betta from Petco when I got him... he was stunning but when I saw everything that I had to do to get myself ready to breed, there was no way I was going to breed petstore bettas.
Breeder quality bettas are really not that much more expensive than a Petco Halfmoon... just buy from breeders in the US!
I see you live in Austin... you might even find a breeder in your area where you can go and pick a pair. If I had growm up fish, I would offer. Check the chapters in the IBC, Aquabid, or ask people here... someone might be able to help you.
