I'm more worried about overall form, granted I know this might not be your intent but it's worth it to look at at least. Just letting you know, this isn't like telling you that your fish are bad, just pointing out some things for you to look at ^_^ I find it's especially important with CT's since they seem to have the worst form of all the tail types. Ideally you want a CT that has a full 180 degree spread which neither of your fish have. The boy looks very young so it's possible he could fill out with age but I doubt his spread will change. They have okay web reduction but ideally you only want around 30% webbing between the rays. You also want the web to be even all around just like the edges of the fins; you don't want the anal fin to be longer than the caudal and you don't want the caudal longer than the dorsal. Make sense?
Something that's more logistics wise; make sure your female isn't too much larger than your male otherwise he will have issues trying to wrap her and you could end up with a spawn that doesn't work out.
They r both very young... Around 5mo old. He is actually a little bigger than she is, and neither of them were fully spread, lol. If u look in my albums, Hawk does have a wider tail spread than in the pic in this thread, but he has mellowed a lot since I got him, so he doesn't flare near as much as he used 2. He originally flared at me every time I fed him, but now he only flares at Merlin, lol. Merlin stays flared, but he's a VT anyway (even tho his colors would b more of a match 4 Vada!) I try my best to switch my 3 boys around, so they get more excercise by periodically looking at "new" neighbors! Lol
