The sick male has some nice fins, his replacement is not nearly as nice though his color is interesting.

The blue masked BF boy has nice fins and should produce some nice fish.

The red dragon boy's fault is the anal fin but that seems to be the norm.

Good luck with the spawning.

Well thank you! It's all about the color for me, if I get nice form that's just an added plus.
I firmly disagree with breeding just for show, all one has to do is look at all of the dogs created for the show ring to see that breeding just for show always spells disaster. That's just my opinion and as usual it's not the popular one. I always do things my own way, regardless of what everyone else is doing. It's an unfortunate byproduct of my stubborn personality.
I do keep form in mind, I just don't make it my rule when buying fish.
Like this fish for instance...He is from my spawn and I am keeping him. Sure he is no show fish, but to me he is gorgeous and I never get tired of looking at his bright vibrant colors. I wouldn't trade his color for the best form in the world.

Why thanks! His body is actually a rich purple and his fins are orange and blue with black butterfly. It's incredible to see.

He is nice TBH. It's just those rays. I breed for a mix of color and good form, if they display good form and color according to strain I'm happy. Agreed on breeding for show can cause problems but hopefully the IBC won't begin including possibly harmful variations into shows.

Thanks! Yea I don't know where that effect came from, neither of his parents have it. I kinda like it though in person, I know it's a fault but it looks super cool lol.
