I'm not a fan of his back, but your girl looks like she can correct that a bit, so if you like him then go for it, not one I would pick though. xD

Those are salamanders? I thought people classified them in MG's .... at least they do in my country.

I thought Salamander = lavender = purple-ish color (combination of blue and red) .... like Mo's spawn.

I know they came from MG's and naming dispute made the breeder call them salamander .... but I didn't understand why until now.

Thank you for the pictures.

@Creat: out of curiosity, was your guy a purple (red-blue) with yellow fins? Your picture didn't really show his colors clearly. Or were his colors more like KadenJame's pictures.

If you're breeding for color, then I suggest you go with a white or yellow male for a larger white/yellow fry ratio.
If you go with a traditional salamander or mustard gas the red and blues will be dominant.

He was like KadenJames pictures but less vibrant on the purple it was slighty washed out but paired with the female in hopes to correct that. I never got a good image of him

I see. Those shouldn't be that rare. The "rare" I was thinking about was a red-blue combination with yellow fins - it's rare to have red and yellow appear on one fish.... I mean real red and yellow, not cellophane nor washed out red.

Hope you find one very soon.
