Erghhh It's so hard!!! Can you tell how many this guy has? This picture seems kinda card for me to count. I can't tell if it's the picture quality, or just my noviceness.

Sorry for taking so long. I tried to look for older posts on rays . . . don't understand how to use the "search". While I keep looking, in the mean time; . . . imagine a line from the mouth to the tail. In that picture you will see/meet the center ray. This ray branches into 8 rays. I know it's not that clear, but enough for you to see/count the end rays. If you look at 2 and 3 rays below that center ray, you will see that they only branch into 4 rays.

When viewing a live fish (or unclear pictures), you can't really count the rays. They will never keep still and pose for you, LOL. So you have to memorize the shape of 2 - 4 - 8 - more rays to "guess" the ray count.

I agree with Dom. The forum is definitely more concerned about politeness than fish. All that aside I agree that you should find a female more fitting for the male.

I can never figure out the search function either for this site.. I have better luck googling the question/topic and can find the thread that way faster than using the search here lol

I am glad you decided not to breed the rosetail. :) It's really a lot of risk for the babies.

Let us know if you see other fish that you'd like an opinion on and we will try to help.

Oh wow that's an awesome thread! Just put it on my favorite's list. I don't know how to use the search either...lol

Actually, I have another thread about the fish I will be breeding with now. So all of my questions regarding that specific fish will be under that thread, just to keep along with the forum rules. (:
