Surprisingly there were a few pk in F1 so luckily the hm was carrying the pk gene.
I did 3 spawns with different siblings for F2.

The first one was a cross between a black sd longfin x blue 4 ray pk. Almost all of this spawn were a total wreck.
Even got 3 x factor rosetails which was weird since both parents were ony 4 ray.
The plakats were horrible with bad toplines and round tails so culled almost everyone apart from 2 females.

Second F2 spawn was the same blue pk father as the last spawn but with a wild coloured pk sister with pretty straight rays and a huge dorsal.
That spawn produced male 2 and 3. All of this spawn was pk since both parents were

Third spawn was a long fin delta with red loss and a blue pk female.
That produced male 1. Only got 2 known surviving from this spawn. both pk. The male started acting weird in his tank so I dropped the eggs into the previous spawns tank for the male to look after. They merged with the other spawn so Ill never know if their are more hidden survivors lol

Phffft on the judges. Coppers are cool.

Nice topline. Nice anal (except for the notch) nice caudal but could have crisper edges. Full dorsal needs longer leading rays. I love wild-stripes. What do judges think?

You know this stuff already. Don't you? LoL

Got any more like that?

Edit: Hey...isn't that your avatar fish?

Why is male #2 better than male #1?

Is it because his anal fin isn't pointy enough?

We dont have shows round here so you guys have to be the judges lol.
I need second opinons otherwise my views could become biased and miss important faults.

What I see is

male 1 has rounded tail, short dorsal and anal rays. But nice colour and topline.
Photo was taken when I first jarred him, hes manned up a bit since then but his fins are still more on the short compact side and his anal has become pointy but not as much as the others

When I see male 2 I see nice colour and nice topline but then long ventrals, rounded caudal and short first dorsal rays.
But then for colour you could smash him and say too much irid on the body, and too much copper bleeding into the fins and also a tiny bit of messy masking. But I like shiny copper fish lol

Male 3 I see long thin body, long thin ventrals, sharp D shape caudal, forward pointing dorsal but it ends in a point, last anal rays curve out and overall his thin bod doesnt match his fins. And I hate his colour

Problem is I want #3s tail on #1s body and ventrals with #2s colour lol
If you can find anymore things that Ive missed that d be good

And yep its the same photo as my avatar
