Yea, I would definitely get a girl like Victor P said with a flat top-line to help keep the body seamless. Make sure she has a short anal fin, his is a tad long but he keeps his symmetry so it isn't a huge deal. I would look for a girl carrying the DT geno or is DT herself to perhaps get a upright dorsal and a broader dorsal base (Make SURE she has good body length and a good topline on her, otherwise I wouldn't use her.) But yes you got the right picture

Victor is spot on.

That guy is NICE. I'd pair him with a girl from Karen or even one of Sincerely's girls.

I was actually eyeing Sincerely's girls for this guy. Thanks! VictorP, Sincerely and MrV. I will make sure to remember this for when I purchase my female. I am happy to hear that my studying HM form Lead to a nice purchase He is active and I'm going to be feeding him some frozen food tomorrow.

I have a second male that came today, He is a royal blue rather than turquoise like this boy, and he is a bit more frazzled from shipping. So I decided to let him rest and I'll get a good picture of him tomorrow.

I believe I'll have a spawn within the next month and a half Since I've gotten most of my supplies ready. And I'll Condition this boy. And of course Post my spawn log

Thank you all for your direction and advice, I really have learned a lot and I appreciate everything.

Anitax3x-call Tony at the store,tell him you are looking for a female to go with your male,he will send you links to the ones he has for you to choose the ones you want.
I have dealt with Tony a good bit,he really cares about his fish and will work with you.
