Male for this yellow HM BF?

This girl is, to my mind, one of the prettiest of my sorority. Could you guys tell me if she is worth breeding, and if so, what I should look for for a potential mate for her? What particular features of hers need to be changed, or what would be good to accentuate in spawn?

I was eyeing this yellow koi male as a potential mate for her and wondered what you guys thought.

And I already own a "silver mustard" male, if you thought he was a good candidate....

Definitely a boy with a smoother top line than her. I think the silver mustard would go with her. Does she have split ventrals as well?

If she is not a good candidate, I have a gold female with great form (I think) who might be a better match with the silver mustard:

Now I think she is short bodied but I like her more than the first girl.

I don't like that one only because she looks dirty with the grey wash. Clean fins/clean bodies are a lot of hard work. Her caudal edges are pretty rounded as well. The dragon male doesn't have real sharp edges so I'd go with the girl with the least rounded corners. She's got a short first ray on the dorsal too. It doesn't look like the dragon fella does and I wouldn't want to add that back in.
