Platinum x Blue/Green?

What might I expect to get from a cross of platinum x blue/green?

Here are images of my platinum HM male and blue/green HM female:

Check this site out. This breeder has a great spawn log . He did a cross kind of like this one and got lots of shiny light color blues. Really pretty

Here the link.

I always look through betta territory for examples. xD
But yeah. You'll likely get steel blues/other blues with a chance of redwash.

if either parent carries marble from the past few generations it may pop up.

Wow, thanks for the info! that link is awesome!

I'm trying to decide if I will breed the platinum x blue/green pair, or my mustard gas male to my green dragon female:

There is not enough mustard gas Bettas in the community.

On the first pairing both look to be carrying yellow so more than likely no red wash should pop up. platinum over blue should give you pastel irids-blue, steel, turq.

the platinum male does have some red spots on his ventral fins, and his gills when he flares.

Because platinum is steel blue (irid) background so you would probably lose the platinum color. Instead, you should get a number of metallic green and steel blue, maybe even a few royal blue. You could also get other light colors such as cambodian like pattern, grizzle, and cellophane.

Your result depends on how strong their genetic background is . . . I don't rely on "which genes are dominant" because IME recessive colors may dominate your fry. Unless you know for certain that the parents are true and fixed colors, you can't really determine the outcome - only probability.

Well, Casper (the platinum male) has gone and got his dorsal fin all torn up (story here: http://bettalog.blogspot.com/2013/10/baby-steps.html) so I am going to wait on breeding him until it's all healed up. I'm still wanting to go forward with breeding next week though, as all of the fish have been conditioned. My plan right now is to go forward with breeding Neptune, my mustard gas male (pictured above) to Rain, my blue-green female. I have no idea what kind of color combinations to expect from this spawn. Anyone have any ideas? Has anyone bred a mustard gas to a solid blue or green?

Haven't done that combo, no.
But you'll get a grab bag of colors. You'll probably see a lot of red wash from the male's yellow,unless she carries yellow.
i really like your blue-green girl.
