You will lose more than you gain. In my experience spawns favor the females heavily. So, breeding HM's you need to look at more than the rays. Still prefer a good 8 ray with long length. If you have a 4 ray make sure she can give 180 spread and has long rays in the tail. She should be much better than the male on all accounts.

This fish has a lot of color.. everywhere. Will take a long time to produce showable fish from him. If you want to breed for fun.. fine. But if show quality is desired, he is not worth breeding.

A sample of a basic show quality HM should look something like this.



I read that somewhere else in this forum has excellent information on what the basic requirements are for a show fish.

Now that helps me see what a "Showable" betta should look like. Thank you!

He has numerous minor faults, mild rosetailing is one of them.

My point was this fish, while called a HM, has rosetailing which is the same fault the OP's Betta has.

better.. but still has some serious faults. tail too short, very rounded edges, sloped anal and first ray too short on the dorsal. Don't like the forward bend either.
