Honest Opinions on blue/red crowntail?

Hey...so to be clear I am not really thinking about showing him and I am not even sure about breeding him. I just wanted some honest opinions on him other than the typical "oh he's cute." I am not sure if he's at full flare in the pics. Thanks in advance!

He is a great Betta. I am not a fan of Blues and CTs but that one is great.

the shape and spacing of the rays in his tail are very nice, if he's not fully grown yet he MIGHT end up being a cross-ray. his dorsal and anal fins are pretty messy though, and his color pattern screams "pet store." overall he's a beautiful fish, but IMO not breeding material.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

He is so friendly and funny so I would say he has a great personality.

I would rather have an Ulgly fish with great personality rather than a colorful one with personality. You got the best of both worlds.

As a guy obsessed with the CTs, I see a beautiful fish that, yes has a messy anal and dorsal fin, has what i believe to be an amazing tail fin. I love how the blue on his fins melts into red, but i wish that it would on the dorsal too. And the red pectorals stand out, which i see as a good thing. He doesn't appear to have the 180* spread like is prefered, but definately at least 70*! good fish!

I am the Emeraldmaster, hear me roar... *meow*

And after I roar at you, may I entice you to look at me fishies! http://www.bettafish.com/members/emeraldmaster-albums.html

He has nice web reduction, but he is a round tail betta as far as form.

He's a round tail? He's not a crowntail?
