I like his colours but his anal fin is way too long. Looks like his tail could end up being a rosetail which (so ive heard) isnt good for breeding lol. Hes pretty though anyways :)

he's lovely, but i agree that his anal is too long. i've learned that the anal should be no longer than the tail. :V

A good HM should have the tail, anal and caudle fins make a circle. The edges should be smoother than they are. For a pet he is beautiful, but for a breeder I'd say keep looking.

The anal fin looks perfect, since the betta isn't flaring, I can't tell if it is a HM. Love the color.

Looks to me like a super delta. If your going for Halfmoon, don't breed him. His dorsal could be better, but if you don't care that he's a super delta then he's very good. The caudal dorsal and anal fins all align nicely and pretty good if you ask me!

First picture: The anal is too big or the caudal is too short/small . It has excessive rays - possible rose genes - I suggest breeding him to a 4 rayed female with balanced and big fins.

Second picture - not flaring, can't comment.

Ok well how is this guy? I know the anal fin is bad but over all what would you say? I read that the black females are infertile so what color would i have to breed him with to get black fry?
