No problem. I like Banana too. My opinion is that they female is a good match for him and they would have a wide variation in the off spring with a large amount of different marble types and colors.

Ok I think I'll try them out with eachother. The female is pretty plump with eggs. How long do you think I should give to condition? Or until you think they are good to breed?

I would take time conditioning them like a week to 10 days of showing to each other a few times a day for 15 minutes. Wait until you see nice v stripes on her then float her in his tank for an afternoon and see if she starts mating behaviors.

When I put them near the female is already starting to show vertical lines. Right now all I feed them are pellets. I have frozen blood worms. Are these good for conditioning? What do you use/ recommend n

Oh that is good. She like him! I would still condition for at least 5 days. Frozen bloodworms are the bomb for conditioning imo. While conditioning gives you time for getting all the needed breeding supplies and time for a good reading up on breeding in general. The stickys here are great and also following what Myates did with her spawn is good info.

That's a shame that he has the combover dorsal. Is it stuck like this or is he just to lazy to flare it out. And how offer during conditioning do you recommend I feed the bloodworms? Everyday or every 2nd day. And should the meal just be blood worms or a couple pellets with that. Also, I've already read some of the stickies. Wanna be prepared and be successfull. Hopefully 3rd time is a charm.

That sounds like a genetic swim bladder disorder. Honestly, I wouldn't breed him.

I'm not sure if it is swim bladders although it does sound like it. He doesn't seem to be doing it anymore. And there is no bubble on his tail. He doesn't have trouble swimming either nor does he float to the top. I didn't know swim swim bladder could be genetic though. I though it was from poor water quality. Is genetic swim bladder different?

CJ said that another from this spawn was doing it and that banana has always done it, so I can almost guarantee that it is genetic. Water quality usually does not cause sbd. What do you mean by "bubble on his tail"? Some fish are just born with sbd and they should not be bred...
