He's very pretty. Most of our breeders here will probably ask you what your goals are .

What's your more specific goal? What color do you want? What tail type? Etc.

You can buy halfmoon males on aquabid or in petstores, but you have to look hard at what you're getting if going the petstore route.

If you can get is a clear flaring side view picture of him (like the ones you see on aquabid) we will be able to point out exactly what you should get in a female for him.

Tanks can take mor than a month to cycle, I would recommend a fish-in cycle. Here's a good article about different types of cycling: http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...de-176446.html (to the mods: sorry for linking to another forum, remove it if you like).
