What color to breed to Hattie?

Hey guys,
Now that Peanut's gone (R.I.P ) and I was planning on breeding Hattie to him.....
I contacted the breeder that I get my bettas from and he has 2 males (he thinks,) one black and one blue and black.
Do you think those colors would go okay with Hattie?

If you can get pics of the males, that'd help a lot..

It depends what color you want the fry to be... if that makes sense. :)

Yeah, he's gonna try to get pictures tonight.
Would the fry be... black coppers (is that even possible?) Or... have shiny black scales.. or be marbles? I know you're all not magicians, but I'm dreadful at this.

Pictures of the males would help a lot. Hattie is looking great! And so sorry to hear about Peanut!

I am not too sure about black coppers, I am sorta a newbie in that area, and by shiny black scales do you mean have LOADS of iridescence? For marbles, I would recommend getting a male similar in her color, but with marble coloring, or with marble dam/sire. If you are looking for marbles you will probably get lots of butterflies too.

Bump-
I have been considering this, and thank you, beat2020 fro bringing this up! I wouldn't have posted this otherwise.
Do you guys think it would be worth it to breed Spiridion to Hattie? Once he's clear of parasites, I mean. I haven't seen any flashes, and he hasn't shaken his head like he did before. He's even blowing a bubblenest :)
He's the fish in my avatar, for those of you who don't know.

I was thinking that they would make pretty fry together. I say go for it once he is healthy. I would even possibly want one of their fry if it was to be successful.

Awesome! Although he hasn't protested at all about his parasites for a while, I'm gonna wait a month or two. I put his tank besides Hattie's and he LOVES her (well... judging by the way he is behaving.) He has even built a little more of his bubblenest :D I think Hattie is developinga teensy bit of breeding stripe, though it's hard to say.
This is gonna be fun... :D
What kind of fry would I get? Any guesses? I'm dreadful at this stuff. Any HMPK marbles, since Hattie's a HM and Spiri's a marble PK?

I heard that black males and females are infertile. ( what does melano mean because the website said melano black bettas to be specific)
