Forest Green male and orange female?

This is just mainy curiosity, Im still doing a lot of research into breeding and collecting supplies...
but I was wondering what everyone thought the fry from a male Forest Green VT and an Orange female VT would look like (color possibilities?)

Male (best pic I have right now):


Female (best pic I have right now):


Both fish are currently in QT as I got both of them within the last two days from walmart, the female has SBD and the male might also, both of the pictures are bad due to cheap camera phone and the fact that both are in Tannis water

You'd get a lot of greens, since the green/blue layer of coloring is on top of the yellow and red layers.

In my opinion, your male looks a lot like a female, and even if not and he's a male, he looks way too young to breed for some time.

But if he is a male, then you should expect blues, multi colors, greens, etc

Never mind. The updated photo definately looks more male, though the dorsal is rather short- probably due to finrot or fin biting.

Is that 2nd photo a recent photo of Pickle? You may already be doing so but I think he needs to be treated for finrot, IMO....

Pickle does not have fin rot, Wildfire doe and she is being treated, Pickle is really young and he gets nervous easily and clamps up, he does have a really short dorsal though, I'll try to get a better pic of him (hes in a 2.5 now)

Pickles a nice colour :D. I'd expect you would mainly get blues with a lot of red wash.
