Which Combination?

Hi there, any thoughts on which combination would be best? I'm looking to make a strain of red, black and white marbles. Form and visual composition matter but I don't intend to compete as there are no shows in my area.
The female is a "long finned" betta with HM geno.

I've only bred solid and bicolors thus far so any suggestions are appreciated.


Thanks in advance~

Those three fish are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!

I'm looking at two males and a female, right?

I say both pairings would be good, but I'd like to see what the female and that black beast of a betta would give. <3
I'm no breeder, I just like the colors >> And you asked, so I answered, lol.

That's right, the black marble is a SD/HM geno Female.
Thank you for the input! I am going for "visually appealing" so that is very helpful :)

The Plakat is very nice, but I'd pair the other two, and find a different (Plakat) girlfriend for the Plakat.

I agree with pdxbetta; the PK is unique but I'd pair the long fins

Awesome, thanks for the advice everyone. I'll probably end up with the HM pair if everything works out.
