My SB line is steel blue based. I'm excited about this line. Trade me a white for a black? xD

Hopefully at some point I'll be doing black copper butterflies (white bf?). I know I want to do something with copper but it changes every day.

How hard is breeding whites? I've never seen one here. Jekyll was more salmon with a white wash look xD and silver blue here and there

I believe for specific traits it is best to pick a brother sister pair that balance each other out finnage or colourwise, breed them, pick a daughter that will again balance the fathers finnage out, then pick a son from that and breed the son back to the mother of the second spawn, in a family tree I think it would look something like this

=) Always been for form first. Who was it that said, "build the house THEN paint the house"? I think it was coined by MrV.

That's a beautiful tree up there! Love the saying, build the house than paint it. Makes perfect sense!!

hahaha nice guys :) that's a good tree... I know I'd love to breed my fighter, but I'm being picky.

What about the breeder you just got your new fish from? Doesn't she have a sister to the fighter?
