Personally, I like your HMPK female more.
Since you said that she built a nest for her unfertilized eggs... I would definitely recondition her. She looks a bit masculine, but I would prefer that over the long anal of the HM female. Just my personal preference.

here is some blood line info on Female 1:
"-Well as far as u know she carrys the butterfly and Big ear genos if you plan on breeding those type. If you cross it with dragon scales would probably come out as fancys or butterfly fancys.-"

And female 2:
"-BOTH PARENTS WERE BLUE BUT THEY HAVE RED AND AQUA IN THERE BLOOD LINE-"

______________
yeah, am kinda leaning on female 1. but i think she is 4 branched, awhile female 2 is like 6 branched

Depends. For HMs and HMPKs its best to have 4+ I think the most I've seen are 16. More branching doesn't usually mean much though.

I prefer female #2. Though she has a long anal, but I like everything else compared to female #1.

May sound weird but what if that female that put eggs in it's nest is a hermaphrodite? Happens to other fish... Just wondering.
