Probably yes, but keep in mind their genetic background plays a big role:
Is the blue from a blue line or is it a stray from other color spawns. If it's from a blue line, thus you should get blue fry plus green and steel blue - not sure about them being solid but definitely multi.
If the blue is a result of "stray" then you might not get clear blue but you will get a lot of irids on body and fin/rays.

Alright. Will do! Try my best at least... Camera on my droid ain't too good. Btw, do you remember who did the post on outdoor ponds? Saw it once here but haven't seen it since...

Don't know about ponds. But Oldfishlady does outside natural settings spawns. Also feeds tons of live foods.

I also do outside spawns (tank and tubs) but not natural settings.

Oops! My bad, was gonna say outside spawns... Sorry. So even with spawning it outside, I would still needa culture of live food going on right? :)

Yes. You could also culture live micro organisms in outside spawns thus should not need to feed right away. OFL uses a lot of oak leaves as substrate and adds live plants. Age that long enough outside and micro critters will grow on it's own.

I don't use substrate other than anchors for my plants. Put in some live tubifex worms and let it gather at the anchors (they need substrates). Then I dump A LOT of daphnia which will die in a day or two - then the cycle begins. In 3-4 weeks I prepare the tub for breeding (siphon out about half of the water and add new water then let it age for another week). By then there would be a lot of snails (from plants), live bloodworms, some sort of water mite, very tiny daphnia, and some infusoria. BUT I usually feed the fry egg yolk anyway.

Once I do water change, my male goes in and stays around 3-7 days before I introduce the female. I don't use floating anything so I can see the eggs when they've been laid. I simply cover the top where I want them to nest and leave the rest open.

I'll use java moss + some other leaves for infusoria. Dont think I can get daphnia so yeah! Here are some better pics of the female :
