Pick my first spawn

Alright so I'm really pumped right now. My mom went to one of slidell's pet stores and told them about how I plan on breeding by the end of the summer. Well the owner said if I want to sell any of my fry that he would buy from me. I'm so excited about this. If my first spawn goes well I might turn this into a small business.

Magenta is going to be the first female I breed but I'm not sure on the male.

I have a Crowntail male named Brees and then I have an EE Plakat named Ice.

I love Crowntails but I think it would be cool to try for Crown Plakats too.

So I'm going to let y'all pick for Magenta.

Persoonally Id go with your ct male. Ctpk takes years of selective breeding to get them and wont pop up from a first generation cross. But if you're keen a and have the time and patience then go ctpk by all means

Say I do try with my Plakat, what do you think I'll end up with? I don't want to have undesirable fry.

with your pk youd end up with long finned fish (unless female is also carrying pk). Most likely they will be vt-delta, maybe some sd is your lucky.
Webbing reduction will probs vary from none to comb but since the male does have some webbing reduction already it may help increase webbing reduction in you fry. Might give ctish looking fish.
You never know really unless you try though. Ctpk would be a fun project if you want to go down that line
Heres some more info on ctpk with tips and images of other peoples ctpk projects that you can compare with
