Genetic outcomes?

Sense I suck at genetics I wanted to ask you guys for your opinions. Sense I got my new HM girl in she is the first I wanted to breed. Which will occur probably in the next 2-3 weeks. SO she is set however I do have two bachelors Gringo (whiteish HM) and Montey (cooper superdelta) (See below).
I want to get a good set of HM. Both of them have pro's and con's. You are allowed to be critical of my fish lol no hard feelings. I know Montey's dorsal is really small but his rays are nicer then Gringo's...

It's hard to give opinions if I don't, at least, see a side view of them flaring (knowing their end branching would help). So I'll comment on the probability based on the female.
If that is the female's spread, IMO you won't get HM in F1 regardless who you breed her to. If you have a big spawn, you may get literally very few (1 - 5) perfect HM (180 spread) - Unless she came from a good HM line.
Her anal fin looks small - you may get some symmetrical/smaller anal fins on fry.

As for color, I prefer pairing her with the copper which may give you green, green metallic (a shiny lighter shade of green), and copper. If pared to the first male, you may get more fleshy color (depends on their background) many may have irid on them and some even have greenish wash on the fins and/or body.

Thank you very much! yes my males tend not to flare really a lot unless I show them a girl, I will try to get some better photo's of their end branches soon.
