  • Black Orchid male
  • Red male
  • Multi male

the first one, because you'd have a good chance of still getting copper, and maybe some purple.

But the second one is BEAUTIFUL!
just saying :P

For colors, I'd say the first one which may give you dark copper.

I would go with #1 as well, keep the colors similar. You may end up with coppers, red, black and blue/greens. The other just pose too much of a variation that you wouldn't have a clue. I would say a very little chance of copper with the others.

Isn't red dominant over other colors?

ya red is dominant but so is blue. but blue is on the same color layer as copper so i dont know what would show up. but when i bred copper and red before they turn out to be copper red bicolors.
