Breeding a melano with a champagne?

Hello everybody!

So, my gorgeous Deltan passed away one week ago, the very same day I was going to breed my betta couple. I was very upset for a few days because I just don't understand what happened, but now I have a little dilemma. I have everything set up and going (brine shrimp hatchery, 2 microworm cultures, infusoria, tank... etc.) and I was really very excited because it was going to be my first spawn. It is very complicated to get a match for my little girl right now so I was thinking on maybe breeding my melano delta-tail with my "champagne" SD female. But, what colors would I get? As far as I know, both colors are recessive traits. Any ideas or suggestions are very appreciated.

Personally I would breed him to a melano female (chill...have you guys read the October/November issue of FLARE??) with blue in the fins...just because in the FLARE article black females with blue in the fins were fertile...well for one guy at's worth a shot.

Not sure what you'll end up with this can try it :)

It would be interesting to see what you end up with if you breed them.
