For show, no, because he has feathering on his fins - not desirable among breeders who are interested in showing/breeding.
For general pets, then sure :) With the right females you can work on getting the red/white/blue to pop out.. just may want to work on lessening the red wash in his anal fin, but that's my personal opinion.
I agree with Myates. Feathers aren't desired and is a major fault to the fishy showy world. And the red wash goes, it's also a fault. His ventrals could get some work into it. He at least has the 180* spread. :)
He's beautiful besides the faults, I would be lucky to find him.
lol ok But, I dont want to breed him for show, I just want them for pets and to see how gorgeous his babies are. But in your personal opinion, I've seen a thread up here about how a fish should have been culled and how they shouldn't be breed to sell the babies to pet store, Do you think he is one of the ones that fall under that category?
Well, they're considered deformities to breeders. They usually have more physical faults because of their fins, they're too heavy so their back "churns". It's their top line slope, feathers are just the "mutts" of the HMs.
