So excited, one I believe is a banded, haven't got the chance to take a good look at them. Got a black female, pretty poor but hoping to breed her to my male self black to get some better blacks when they're old enough :) and a cute I think satin female with a pretty greyish color.

If you like banded, you're in luck! It's an incompletely dominant gene, so you'll see banded pups in the litter even when only one of the parents is banded. And having two banded parents doesn't increase the number of banded pups in the litter--it just means you have fewer self pups and also have double-banded pups. The double-bandeds can be anything from a completely white mouse to a mouse literally with two bands. Most of the time, they'll be capped or have bands that cover most of their bodies, often with other white spotting on the edges.

Cait's site is the best for banded breeding info:
