Her colour is nice and would work well with the male though.
What is your goal for the second pair? If you want more super blacks you should use a super black male.if you want black orchids that pair would work.
Thanks for the quick reply and advice Matt!
I thought the pineapple female was more of a round tail.
The mustard male is right at 180 when in full flare. I was hoping to breed the best female offspring back to the male to try to get a better tail fin spread. His fins all seem to be well balanced.. Would her anal fin produce long anal fins in the offspring? And also what would happen to the body color matching these colors together?
As for the black PK.. I would like to end up producing more offspring similar to the male. Maybe adding a little more turquoise if possible. He was sold as a black salamander turquoise HMPK. And I was told by the seller "I can find a matching female for him if you would like. Usually if you want that color I would suggest breeding him with a black female, melano female, copper blacks, and strong turquoise females". I'm just not real sure what way to go.
