This remains a very unusual almost reverse leucistic pigment pattern (the legs are dark, the upper surface less pigmented). The nearest similar pattern in fish I have seen is the "Bristol Blue" Shubunkin variety of goldfish which does not breed true but produces some offspring which show a similar pattern. Good luck with the back cross.

Putting on my adopted Welsh hat all the Gareths I know are definitely male. How about a more drastic name change? Anne Bonny was a female pirate so why not Pirate Bonny?
