blue x red shouldcome out wih 50% purple 25% blue 25% red (roughly)simply because both red and blue are dominant genes so they both have to come out whaatever!
i know you say it takes people generations to get the right colour combinatios but i will say this; thats because they are just plain picky!!!

but with that female her anal fin is long and her cadual fin isn't crisp. females are where fry get most of their form from so you need a perfect female. i suggest breeding him to a white female and the fry will be white orange and yellow.

Ya it's going to be hard to find the right match, butin this case I want to be picky not experimental. I want the butterfly pattern to come thru and I want the orange to come though if possible. I guess I misunderstood what chart you were talking about Betty, sorry. Well my search is on lol

If it were only that simple !!!??? With white means both carry cambodian genes which is more dominant so you'll get cambodian like colors. But with orange, though both will carry cambo genes, but the orange mutation is stronger so you'll have a better chance of getting orange fry.

@HD: Sometimes getting that "perfect" betta is close to impossible. I agree that you should be very picky in choosing, specially if you're going to pay dearly for it. But you may not get her .... well not in time to breed with your current male anyway (you only have one).

Since color is more difficult, I suggest you concentrate on that more than form. So if there is a female with deep orange color - consider it, as long as she doesn't have too many flaws (form). Then when you have a bunch of orange babies, you can selectively breed them plus/or search for "the perfect partner". You definitely can experiment more with orange then (breed to other colors).
