Cross breeding peacocks.

Ok, so i have just set up another species only tank to add to my existings. Ive just bought 12 neon blue peacocks and the breeder i bought them from also threw in 3 hybrids. 1 of which i know is 100% eureka red peacock, i thought it was male due to the amount of colour ahe has at such a small size. I plan to remove all neon males except 1 and also the hybrids even though theres a part of that wants know what the other 2 are.

This is my problem, i came back today and the eureka red female is holding with a neon blue male as the father which isnt good!!! Anyone with experience in cross breeding peacocks? Whats the possible out come, dead fry, deformed fry or possibly something different thats wrong but beautiful? Could it be a mixture of new colours? Im already thinking of leaving her in the tank to spit as i dont want to raise hybrids and getting rid of them at an earlier stage will be easier.

Fish die belly upward and rise to the surface. It's their way of falling.

Leave them in the main tank, cull any survivors. My own opinion.
