Not very good with critiques, but he looks spoon-headed.

So he appears to be a red dragon hmpk. He is spoon headed and his caudal is quite rounded. Other than that I can't see anything-need better pics. Red dragons are common enough to find great stock fairly cheap. I personally would buy a better male but if you want to breed him look for a girl with solid dragonscale and a smooth topline. Look high and low for tall straight outer caudal rays. Imo dragons should be very high quality to be bred because faults really stand out on them. Nobody wants messy dragons. Everyone seems to want clean color seperation and heavy full metallic scales. After saying that there is still no reason you can't eventually get super nice ds. However if you want nice selable fry right from the beginning invest in two really nice fish instead of one.

If you can get better pics I think you could get a better evaluation. Honestly, I can't really make out his fins at all.

Spoon headed, Caudal (tail) is too rounded, anal is too long, decent dorsal, color isn't great, has some uneven scaling. He's a pretty pet, but I wouldn't recommend breeding him.

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...
