A suitable female for Gumbo .. help please!

Ok so I think I'd really really like to have some babies fathered by Gumbo, the boy in my avatar. Reason being? Well I want to continue his line b/c he's just so gorgeous <3 and I will be sad eventually when he passes on, so I'd love to have another boy or 3 like him.

I realize since he's a marble results from him will be unpredictable. But I'd still like to try. My question is, what color female should I find for him?

I currently have a green marble super delta, a copper crowntail (out of the question), a gold/yellow dt, and a marble blue.

I am willing to buy, so feel free to browse aquabid for me! He is a halfmoon.

same tail type, up to 50 for the fish.

so far I found these gals -

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1306194367 Don't really like her form much but she's got a bit of orange in her fin

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1306025122 She has awesome finnage - but colors I'm not sure about. Gumbo has blue in him, but it's navy. I'm thinking she would not be bad though ..

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1305733851 She seems kinda perfect but not 100% sure

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1305840937 And this gjirl - wow. That's all I have to say. I like her b/c I have always wanted pure white like this, and I think I can get some marbles like Gumbo and some pure whites out of the deal with her, so I can line breed fancy marbles and pure white from this spawn ... correct me if I'm wrong. She's also the most expensive, so I hesitate...

I'd be more than willing to help you look for one, your females sound pretty but if you want one more similar to him you'd probably like to stick with the red marbling as to blues/greens. Do you prefer Halfmoons or HMPKs? If you sell I might be interested in some, I've admired your avatar, he is lovely. ,3

I would probably go for the Aquastar1 female or the dalmation HMPK. Or just wait I'm sure some more pretty ladies will pop up soon.

I'd avoid the female from Aquastar... She has extreme rosetail.

Do you want more red or more blue?

I could have sworn I replied last night ... I'm not sure if I want more red or blue. I like him exactly the way he looks ... ack!

Would it be bad to breed rosetail? I actually like it ...
