Quality fish?

Thinking about getting this boy. not used to more than 2-ray branching so let me know what you think. His tail does look a little strange to me.

His middle rays are joined and his caudal edges are quite round. His ventrals are too thin for my taste. But in general, he looks OK.
Maybe he has a sibling brother with better form?

I personaly love him, but i dont to much like the rays. And is it just me or does the anal fin seem a little long.

Looking at the body, the fact that at the base of the tail his body twists up kind of puts me off, the curve is quite strong (IMHO) to the point if it was me I might class it as a deformity (But I'm no expert so don't just take my word for it!) Notice on this one the curve is not nearly as strong (just an example) :

The caudal seems a little uneven towards the bottom and yes crowntailed, the anal does look slightly longer than I personally would like it to be, but then that again is just my opinion!

As you can tell I am in a very Picky mood :P

begging to think it would be a nice pet, but nothing more. I almost still want to get him for his one black eye and one silver eye.

I'm thinking that is just the way the light hit the eye...
