Question Opinions!

Got this girl on AB yesterday, and am now man shopping. The breeder offered me a male to go with her, but I can't help but think his form looks a tid bit wonkey. Opinions?

My girl:


The Male

Or there's also this guy





And although it makes no sense with the color of my girl, I ADORE this guy. Out of curiosity, what would I get out of the yellow girl x this boy?

Personally, I like the second yellow (marble ?) and the red dragon. But be careful - my eyesight is bad .... can you see his caudal rays? I can't see them but they don't look right.

The red dragon's body could be better.

With the red one and your orange female I would say you would get mostly reds.
My favourite out of the lot would be the Blue/white marble plakat.
My second favourite is the last one, but it looks like someone painted over the real colouring, you can see the edge of it looks the same colour as the marble one!!!
The one with the better caudal is actually the last one with the orange!He would probably be better if you intend to breed them.

I like the second yellow and the last (orange) guy. Probably that yellow the best.

I have a bit of an untrained eye though :) Only just started learning the standards.

That second male you posted (the second yellow marble) is by far the best out of the bunch. Much much better form then the first guy, and he's related to the girl correct? So you'll have a very good chance of getting more yellow marbles like the parents in the resulting offspring.
