Thoughts on this male?

I REALLY shouldn't be considering this...but he reminds me of a Van Gogh painting



What do you think? What would I need to find to breed to?

it might just be his posture, but it looks like his spine is curved and poking out to the side...that's not just a show flaw, that's a deformity that's absolutely inhumane to breed, regardless of how beautiful the fish is.

i may be wrong, or seeing things, but it's something to ask the seller about before you make a bid.

At the very end, near his caudal? I have to zoom on really close to see it, but yeah I see what you mean

If it is a birth deformity, is it still cruel to breed him? I mean.. it doesn't necessarily have to be genetic right?

unless he suffered a spinal injury (which would probably leave him paralysed) it's almost certainly genetic, and there's a decent chance it'd be passed on.

Oh I see =[ Well I hope it isn't his case. He really has great colors!

other than the deformit looks great. Maybe a few too many ryas, but ice OHM and fins look symetrical.

If it were me and I had the money, I'd buy and I'd spawn them in a heartbeat. After finding out if that spine is just the way he looked in the picture or permanent.

Personally, I'm leaning towards him just having been like that for te picture.
What seller is this? If its a more reputable one then I don't think that you have to worry about them going around and selling deformed fish
