Very nice fish bred by Boat.. one of the best breeders ever IMO. Lost everything in the flood and is coming back.
Super nice fish. Great branching and spread. First rays on the top and bottom of that tail need to be longer to have sharper edges.. but he is no worse then most and something breeders have to work on.
Wish we had shot of the other side as I be that is one heck of a dorsal. Has the forward first rays so a shyhawk.. needs those first rays longer.. but again, he is not bad. The dorsal is branched well and looks to have good shape.
Anal is level and ties in real nice to that tail. He has very good balance. And he is the old fashioned dark red. The fish is in good condition and I would breed him if I had him. You would want to breed to a smoother outline as those jagged edges can cost him in a show ring. A nice dark female that has good, not excessive branching and smoother fins and you should have very competitive fish for the show ring.
Or.. your mom can just enjoy a very nicely bred fish.
