To most breeders (I think) it's not worth the effort since breeding them would cost the same as breeding show quality pairs (types that would sell). In my area, HM combtails (the nice symmetrical ones) are undesired - simple due to preference.

As for colors; you should get both colors in the offspring plus other multi combo's.
PK stands for plakat, right? If so I would be thrilled! They are my favourite!

What tail type would you reccomend breeding her to? I would love to do plakat x plakat but I'm not sure the store around me stock plakats... no idea how I ended up with a plakat female, if that is what she is. My options for males would be deltas, super deltas, halfmoons, crowntails and veiltails.

Yup, PK is Plakat.
I'd say breed the Plakat and the Super Delta!
