Janan: not too bad...but I tend to look for reds with no blue wash or iridescence ....Thomas dogs' red was very similar to Sam! All 3 of my boys have that deep, saturated red..."the color of blood spilled at midnight...'sangoire'" (from one of my favorite trilologies "Kushiel's Dart" by Jacqueline Carey).
At their darkest points, my reds are like red in shadows....almost black but still red.
And while you found a nice male Janan, his fins cannot compare with the fins from my interbettas red HM or my phusit red.

It is considered not as desirable if your red has iridescent blues/greens/whites....also not as desirable if your solid blue has red wash or partial red finnage...

Thanks for the info, Ravenwinds! I am too new to be able to identify the flaws and desirables. I wish I were, tho!

I have been following this thread because I want to buy one of Aquabid's beauties, but I'm "snobby" enough to want a fish that would draw oohs and aahs from those that know what to look for. Not that I necessarily would one day breed, but just because I want the best.

I would really appreciate you, Catowoman, etc. to keep posting the good fish from Aquabid and I will grab one. I want one like Syrviin's beauty or Catowoman's avitar.

Thanks again!

I'm liking this red!

Saw this red this morning....can't critique the form or if he's show-worthy or spawn-worthy (not my area of expertise)....I just know what I like!

I like that one, too, Catwoman. I like the green color.

I like the pretty green fishy!!! And the red guy! My Eridan (the VT in my user pic) was all red like that when I got him now he has some blue coming through.

his colors are beautiful but his patterning reminds me a lot of bird poo.
