Showable Betta Halfmoon? Critique please (video)

Id like to know if he is "Showable" or "Show Quality" he is my newest trade I got, and I just cant stop staring at him, his colors came in beautifully and he sure is fabulous!

I can add photos if you'd like :) I thought the video would be a better view of what he can do. I would like to breed him to one of my HM females in the future :)

He has split ventrals, a long dorsal and anal, and rosetailing. Color wise, he is a copper with red wash... Not a very good thing.

Yeah that's another reason why I got him, his ventrals were split, but now healing up better :) How do you get away from rosetailing?


Thank you matt

Also weak peduncle and messy masking. To get away from rosetail breed to a fish that has 4 ray branching.

Split ventrals are usually genetic, they do not heal.

Working with rosetails is risky.

Several generations of careful selection... and you must constantly watch for it.
