OK. Super excited now that I finally found a good copper giant female. I have only been hunting for a year. She is soooo metallic I'd almost say dragonscale but I'm not sure. She looks pretty decent except for the caudal. That's pretty rough. I can't wait to get a new camera because it's driving me nuts that I can't take macro shots.
Anyway, her mate is a really big steel blue. Both are 8 rayed. His caudal is nice and goes the whole 180. They are around 5 months old. I'm hoping for some nice coppers.
I have found several color combinations using copper but I'd like more input from anyone that has bred coppers. What did you breed to your copper? What did you get? How did the f2/f3 turn out?
