With this boy, I would say the only thing that bugs me most is the separation from the dorsal and caudal fin. It's like a tight divot in there and can be passed down. Also he does have a slight spoon head, but IMO its nothing to make a big fuss about. His anal fin could be wider, but I suggest not breeding him. Overall he is a nice fish, but had too many flaws that would take more time perfecting.
Also black females infertile? Not at all. That is how you get super blacks. All females are 'fertile' (meaning they produce eggs) when they reach the mature age. The eggs will be fertilized by the male for them to hatch. Or else they are infertile (meaning they won't batch) So in this case all females are 'infertile' since the eggs done hatch when they drop them.
Though I think the only meaning for fertile is that the eggs can hatch, but I'm under about that definition.
Also if you like blacks, I can get you some for much cheaper and they have much better form. They are also halfmoonplakats. I got 3 pairs of them and they are perfect to begin with. Youd really like them. Let me know if you want to.
