Out of the first three, I like the third the best.

The first female has a hunch back, incomplete 180 spread and her caudal edges could be sharper. Her blue iridescence does not continue over all of her scales and her anal is a tad long.

The second female is better and she is already a marble which is a plus. Her anal fin is acceptable by IBC standards, comparing the photo they use to present an ideal female. She has a good top line to make her body spindle shaped. What I don't like about her is the caudal edges, she has an 180 spread but her edges round which is a fault in HM's. I would also like a more upright dorsal than what she has inorder to retain the upright dorsal in your male.


The third female I like the most of all, her fins fit together so well and she has that strong D shape to her caudal which will help your male. Her anal is short so
That will help shorten in the fry. Good scaling and color to them. Her dorsal stands upright instead of curved like the second female. The only thing I don't like about her is she seems to have a slight bump in her topline so if were to breed her watch for smooth toplines to help with the issue further down the road.

I'm still learning female conformation so I love to hear another persons opinion about these girls form.

P.S. I would look for a HM female first, he doesn't need a reduce in ray count that the HMPK girls would give him.
