Black x Cellophane

What would a black (with green) betta crossed with a cellophane betta produce, colourwise? This is assuming tail types are compatible.

I'm just curious.

I'm guessing a LOAD of multis?

That does make sense.

I can't find any info at all on the cross. It's very strange.

:/ hmmm...
Well there isn't much out there that's actually documented. I could have my bf ask his uncle. He was a betta breeder out in Vietnam for 30 years.

Thank you, I would appreciate that.

I have a black orchid male and a cellophane female. I'm still trying to determine whether or not the female is breeding quality - she came home from the breeder with some issues but has improved dramatically in the few days I've had her.

As this is a personal spawn, with the offspring being given away or kept for myself, I don't really care what the outcome is as long as the fry are healthy. Still though, it would be nice to have an idea of what may come up.

I've experienced (and heard) that the fry mostly resemble the female. So you might get a couple cellophane's and a lot of multis. Punnet squares don't really work unless you know the true genes of the fish. :/
I'll let you know what my bf's uncle said in a bit :P
