help me decide which pair to match

i plan on breeding again in the next few days. i need help deciding which pair to match up. i am leaning towards the GoldM with the OrchidF. a black/gold orchid combo might look intersting. all inputs are welcome.

here is a gallery of all my fish again.

the boys:
Quote:
gold. he is my personal favorite. i like how his fins are symmetrical and have really long extensions.


white. he isnt as white as i would like him to be and lacks pigment on the forehead.


copper. i really like him except for the fact that he has too much orange. also, his body is too long and slender. the seller said he has MG genes from his parents. but i question the truth to that.


orchid bf. i love how dark he is! the fact that he is a BF makes him all that more interesting.
the girls
Quote:
gold. she is the sister of that gold male above. the extensions in her cadual fin are really nice for a female.


orchid. my absolute favorite! i dont have anything bad to say about her.


cambodian. i bought her at a pet store because i have never seen a ct female there before. the extensions in her fins are rather short. i dont think ill ever breed her.


mg. i see a lot of potential in her even though she isnt the most attractive fish. i really like the mustard line.

LOL @ DramaQueen. :D

If I were you, I'd spawn the orchids!!!!! I LOVE orchids so so so much. I would kill for a female like that...

I'd spawn the orchid pair or the white with the orchid though I think a gold and an orchid cross would be interesting :)

If you have a couple of tanks (like I do) you can do a couple of spawns. Like the gold sibling pair and then the copper to the MG. So I would use all but the cambodian (seeing how you don't have a red or cambo male). So you've got a lot of possibilities in your selection.

i wouldnt want to spawn the gold sibling because i'd only end up with more golds. this is the same reason why i wouldnt want to do orchidM x orchidF.

i will probably buy another tank to get two spawns going at the same time. for one of the spawn, i have my mind set on GoldM x OrchidF.

although probably my least favorite male, i will use the copper male because people here seem to like him. the question is should i match him with GoldF or MgF? inputs please.
