It is difficult to judge without a side view of a full on flare. Even if you were to have two full 180* halfmoons, you would only get a certain percentage of halfmoon offspring because there are several different genetic characteristics that define a halfmoon. Some of these characteristics are dominant, others are recessive. So it really is unpredictable. A lot of people will breed HMPK to a HM that needs work, since the plakat gene is recessive, the offspring will still be long fin HM with better spreads. =)

I would stick with this male. He has good potential. The melano female has a nice-looking topline, and your male has a bit of a spoon head. She would help to fix that. It also appears as though she has adequate branching to be at least a near HM, see the enhanced photo below-

Your not going to get any hm
Your male don't have a full D spread and your female is a little short from a D to
You'll get a lot of delta n super delta
The female is full halfmoon and I bred her myself. You cannot judge the female by that picture anyway. Females are only infertile if they have no color at all. If a black female has ANY color she is fertile. This black female is the mother of this spawn here and I got over 150 healthy fry out of her.

Both of her parents were steel, and her father comes from a line of blacks.

She a little shy from a hm
Almost but not there yet.
She'll produce round edge babies if she breed to the male
Cause both of them have round edge
Not a member of ibc but hold to ibc stander
Easier to sell fish

No problem! She is a very pretty girl! Her parents are Mr. Soprano and Barbara. Both of the parents were bred and bought from Sheroyln from Basement Betta's. Sheroyln's steel line just won BOS too.
