Genetic Help yellow

I need help guys and gals with my genetics. I really love my salamamders and got a pair of yellow ones. After the male died I learned how rare they are. So I am thinking of how to keep the color. What male should I breed my girl to? I thought about a red salamander or mustard gas but I am not sure which would be easier to cross back. Here is the females spawn log, sorry I am on a smart phone and I cant get pics http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=100281

I found this mustard gas male on aquabid any opinions? http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1342775767

He's very pretty and the yellow is wonderful, but I'd be afraid the blue might get cover the yellow body you are looking for. If the male comes from a yellow background however, it might work. I sure hope someone else with more salamander experience than I have will step in.

A lot of people tend to get confused as to what a "true" salamander is. Techinically speaking, a salamander must contain the white butterfly pattern on all 3 unpaired fins AND ventrals, and must contain a body color that is different from the colored portion on the fins. For example, these males are outstanding-




You can see how they've got the BF pattern, then yellow hued fins, then an almost iridescent purple on the body. Your male was a pretty good salamander specimen, but in order to keep the strain alive I'd breed the girl to a mustard gas, as this is where the original salamanders derived from. So, yes, you're correct.

~points up at Kaden's post~ This is why I asked you if you considered mustard gas as an option. ^^

Aquastar71 seems to put out yellow salamanders consistently.
