Yes you sound absolutely correct to me. Someone is kidding themselves if they think that they are going to get fry all the same color, form. Lol! It's a grab bag really and you are lucky you get a couple that you think wow there it is when you are trying to correct the genetics and make it better :)

Lol glad I make sense at least haha It's funny because when I explain it that way it seems so simple but I know there's so much more to it ^_^

Yes but sometimes the simple explanation is better :) You know when people say explain that to me in layman's terms... then it clicks. If I get a pic of his sibling I will post it on here so we can take a look and go... hmmmm.... maybe that will give some insight as to how he got his form and color... Who knows? Or she might be perfect and that will just throw everything right out the window! lol!

Lol! Well I don't have a pic of the sis yet but I am also in contact with a show breeder that says she's got a female she thinks will go great with him. She said he has a bit too much branching. She is going to get back with me later after she studies him again and wants to make a good guess of his size. Can't wait to see what these females look like :)

Yup, rose tailing is just over branching or too much branching. Same goes for feather tails which are just more branching than RT!

So I did learn that you can breed him to another HM girl but just not one with 6-8 ray's or more branching. Something like a 4 ray would be ideal to reduce the rays and then 2 ray being a VT could work but you wouldn't get all or most HM's at that point.

She mentioned breeding him with a nice irid female also. I will have to look at the boards and figure out what's the best section to put the post on and ask for opinions.
