Have a look at my HMDT,please.

Hi,
This is an HMDT from one of my spawns last summer,I am planning on breeding him this week with a sibling female.
I would like your opinions on color and form,I know he has some red in him,his split seems to be good and his lobes seem to be pretty even.
I am hoping to get a show line from him and would love opinions on him over all,be honest,I take criticism for the better of my fish!
Since this will be my first attempt at breeding for shows,I need to know what is good about him and what is bad about him.
I do have a few more pics of him,but it will not let me upload them right now,if needed,I can probably put them on latter.
Thanks
Bill

If you do breed him will you be selling his spawn? I have been looking for a HMDT for quite a while.

I am going to breed him,he has been in the breeding tank for 2 weeks,I will be putting the female in this weekend.
We will see how things go,but you are welcome to have your pick(s).
I would not charge anyone on the forum for the fish(would not seem right,after all we are all friends),just shipping.
I will stay in touch.
Might try to resize the pic again,this one just shows a close up of his fins.

I know nothing about breeding bettas (or fish for that matter, my mollies seemed to procreate just fine without my help) but I do want to comment on what a pretty fish he is. Wrll from what I can see of him. :)

Thank you so much. I am also in love with the rose tails, they are so beautiful, I know that breeding them is a debate right now but how beautiful and calming to watch.

I really like him, overall. I am no expert on showing fish, but his fins are good. He has that "comb" look in on his dorsal, I don't know how that does in shows... Also, he has red wash on his anal fin that isn't ideal.

I am hoping that by breeding him,I can lose the red wash.
His finnage looks pretty good,and you can see the split is really deep,his lobes,when he gives a good flare are even,just hope I can improve on his color!
His ventrals are nice also,just has that red in them.
I will see what the spawn will bring.
I got a few real nice sibling females,along with a few more decent males from the other spawn,but he had the best split and lobes.
