I would have bought him. Here's why. He may not give you show quality on his own but he would improve your female and that's the name of the game. Improve and improve until you get quality. Your female has a pretty rough anal. His looks pretty good. His dorsal is a nice fan shape. Hers is rough with reduced webbing. Now, his topline looks a bit wonky to me but hers looks OK. She is reddish and he's carrying a lot of red so you would actually be working away from salamander and towards red with that pair. I would look for a non red salamander for either of these OR work into your line later on if you buy him. The blueish yellowish ones are what I'm referring to.
