What will I get?

Color wise and tail wise. Obviously they will be CT's but what kinds? I am pretty sure that she is a double ray but can't decide if he is a double ray or a single ray. I have really good pictures of him, but she is very active and nearly impossible to get a good picture of lol. Here is the male, MungDaal: (sorry for the head turn lol)








And the female, Panini:





He is like an aqua blue/green, with white tips on his fins and maroon on his ventral fins. She is blue, black and teal with red fins that have black edging around them.

He looks like he's double rayed.
I'm not sure about the offspring, though. I've never been good with genetics.

Male mainly has double rays and the female is definitely double. Is the female's irid blue or green? It looks green.
You should get double ray turquoise/green with red fins (similar to female) and a few solids, maybe with red ventrals.

OK. The female does have an irid green right at the base of her cadual (I have no idea how to spell that lol) fin.
@Neelie, I could ship if you wanted lol. I won't be breeding for a little while, still have to by some grow out containers and food to feed the little ones.
I also have this male that I was thinking about as well. They are the same color, so I would get all or mostly the same color... right?
This is Chowder:

I would use Mungdaal if I were you because he has better ray deduction.

I'd breed Chowder for color and Mungdaal for finnage, so it's really your pick. Either way you'll get CTs with red and blue.

Would I get the finnage and the color if I bred Panini and one of the males, then bred the best female from that spawn to the other male?

I'd think so. Breed the two similar colored ones and then a few weeks later breed her to the other male. That way the fry are around the same age and you can breed the best two from both spawns.
