I assume you will need the mustard gas mutation - irid body with yellow fins. You can start of with MG's and work your way through to make the body green. But yellow is recessive so you will need to constantly watch for that - perhaps reintroduce yellow somewhere along the line.

IME I unintentionally got green body with yellowish fins (not clean yellow) breeding a copper to a platinum (dragon line). I don't know the pair's actual genetic background though.

Greens are blue with platinum introduces aren't they?

So if you gor a blue bodied yellow finned fish and bred it to a platinum yellow, couldn't you theoretically get a couple green body/yellow fins in the first generation? And then from there you could simple ppick the best two and work on form/cleaning up messy color and such(which could tack generations to perfect xD).
I'm still learning some of the more complicated genetics so please correct me if I'm wrong someone xD

Well generations taking 3-6 months, multiple ones would equal years, yes. xD
