Hello, I have a female Koi betta and am soon getting a cellophane betta with an iridescent layer. What kind of babies might they produce if they breed in the far future? Will they possibly have a galaxy koi? (The female is still a Juvy, hence her coloration is not yet strong, and the male is not in the best condition but I plan to give a shot at grooming him naturally.)

I would guess most to be a solid color with long fins unless the male has some recessive plakat koi/marble genes. When crossing 2 unrelated fish with different colors and patterns this is often what you end up with, they rarely look like the parents IME. Long fins are also a dominant gene so most will be long finned. He is not quite a HM and the edges of his fins suggest he has some CT, I’d guess they will produce some odd tails shapes/spreads as HM is also a recessive gene.
