Thanks, guys, this is the kind of critique I was hoping for! I don't have a breeder's eye, so I never noticed 90% of the things you guys pointed out. I will consider carefully if I want to take on the project of breeding him, or if I'd rather get an AB fish and start from good lines.
Hally - Heeeeey long time no see! I wander in and out on this site haha. I get distracted by work sometimes and disappear for months at a time, but I'm still in the hobby! Just dealing with the pesky business of being an adult and having responsibilities haha. No fun!
