Hmpk form critique

Like the title says... Please critique the form of these hmpk. The blue boy has spikes at the end of his anal, and the red has split ventrals and a mediocre topline. I would like a more trained eye to look at them, though. If you can not critique them then general opinions on who you prefer are also valued... but please explain why. Please be honest (this will help me in a decision) and call out the flaws that you see, but not bashing... Thanks!

*Mods...I just realized I posted in the wrong place. I would appreciate it if you could move this to the "show" section.*

red marble
Round uneven tail
Dorsal too high
Spoon head
First dorsal ray to short
split ventrals
Colour doesnt look "clean"

Blue boy
Nicer caudal
nicer dorsal
looks like hes got split ventrals
Anal doesnt come to a point
Stronger body

Personally Id stay far from red male and go to blue guy instead

I agree with trilobite, out of the 2 I would spawn the second because his flws can be worked out with a good female.

+1 trilobite. If we are just talking about form, I agree; the blue boy. His colors are also really cool!

Hypothetical sitiation here:

How would you idealy get rid of the blue in the body and strengthen the blue in the fins. lets say your going for a bicolor

Hopefully in a decade I can breed myself. might as well figure everything out genetic wise. and have experiance

Black snail : chaco

Bettafish, to reach your goal you would not use marbles as your starter stock.

Is that because the "marbling" gene that causes the "randomization" of the color of the scales would be carried on in the offspring and always appear but in random ways?

I mean to me its seems like those would be perfect to use. not many differations in colors. like how some bettas could have a red splash, and to get rid of it u breed with yellow. but then geesh doesn't that effect the other colors? just always seems to be something to always fix not just a perfect end result.
