What is your reason to breed then we can offer better advice??

This is a pair I have in right now..

This is a past spawn.. only got a few offspring and some will go to convention.

Adding onto that, a pair should compliment each other. For instance, take a look at a spawn from Joep, "BettaTerritory, Netherlands" -

He plans to breed this male-


Notice the severe dip in his head. Joep decides to use this female-



She has a nice, smooth topline that compliments his flaw.

One of their offspring with a clearly much improved topline-


Always breed for form first, and then color. "Build the house before you paint it." A good pair is one that shares good traits, and compliments each other's flaws. (Kind of like a good pair in us humans. Awwww.)

here is my other pair-
my female, HM female. her anal is longer than her caudal, but she has (i think) 8 or 6 branching, looks like a good (enough) dorsal, and good 180 spread too :D her named is "Cookie":

my male HM (big ear) has a 6 branching (?), and his anal is equallly to his caudal, i think a good (enough) dorsal, 180 spread (i think a little bit more actually) his name is Cryptom:
