I'd say something similar colored but you'd have to ask someone who is familiar with genetics.

What color female depends on what color fry you are expecting. For similar colors, you can try cambodian, Cambodian line but with irids, irid grizzle. You can also use irid, red, or yellow. Irid will give you dominant irid colors (not solid) while red dominantly reds (not solid).
