As some of you might know through my various threads, I'm currently seeking a pair of HM or HMPKs to breed over the summer. I've been drooling over NineBetta's stock since last summer when I first started researching breeding, and nowI may get the chance to get a pair from them.
Anyway, out of what he has for sale now I found four that I really like. He has sibling females for each one. As a breeder, which two males look the most promising in terms of finnage and body shape? I'm training my eyes to see these things, so all imput from you is really helping me become a better identifier.
Male1-- IMO, he looks to have decent overall finnage, but the anal is a tad long.
Male2-- OHM, but I read somewhere that that's good for breeding. I don't love his color, as I'm wanting to work with marbles, but he seems to have nice asymmetrical fins.
Male3-- Again, long anal but I love the even look of his dorsal and cadual. Ray wise, I'm not sure.
Male4-- I'm not always fond of grizzles, but I adore this guy. However, I feel like his dorsal could be better, and the anal should be more pointed.. I really would like feedback on him, because my eyes aren't as good as most of the breeders on here.
