Help me pick a pair?

These are giant marble hmpks.

Male - Black/white with some yellow and dull army green.





Female 1 - Has more rounded fins and is slightly bigger, but less color. She also has nice thick white scales. She also has a bit of yellow here and there.






Female 2 - I love her color and feel she has better form overall, although her fins are shorter.





A few for comparison





Thoughts?

I like the first one as well color wise, but i'm drawn to the second girls fins for some reason.
Either one would make pretty babies xD but you'd probably have better luck getting ones like the father from the first female since she has yellow aswell.

Both are good choices. Choosing female one will have offspring almost exact to the parents, female two will have a more "blended" look in their offspring.

I went with female one as well even though I love female 2's coloring...I have a green monster male who will go well with female 2. I love the white and yellow in the first pair. He's got a bubble nest built, probably going to let her out here in a minute and will definitely keep a lot if this spawn is successful!

They're spending lots of time under the nest but no wrapping yet.
