Worth Breeding?

I was wondering if my HM boy was worth breeding. He has some fin damage due to fin rot a few months back but it is healing now.

The pictures aren't clear enough to see his faults. But he looks breed worthy. Since he seems to have multiple rays, best pair him to a 4 ray female.

If I breed him to a marble female would his red carry out into the fry to get red marbles?

I would say he is breeding worthy but his branching is a bit excessive. Love his color. If you breed him to a marble then he will most likely produce some red marbles being that red is dominant. That and I'm assuming the marble female you are using is one of CJ's so they carry red and you might get a whole bundle of surprises.

Yes the female marble would be one from CJ. Also, the female is smaller than the male, is this going to be a problem as I know it's recommended that that are the same size or female slightly smaller. But she is quite a bit smaller

um...probably no, I've tried one like that before...but if it's the female which is bigger, then probably yes, cos I never succeed in breeding small male x larger female LOL

Yes, as long as she isn't overly small - if too small the male may not view her as breedable.. and if the female is too young she may not become eggy. But a few centimeters difference should be fine.

Breeder so I have too many to count and too many named to list here!

Ok. She is probably 2 cm smaller. She is very thick with eggs.
