I'd go with male #1. His overall form is better than male #2 which looks odd - spine seems to curve.

I hope you know what you're getting yourself into...... CT x single tail. What are your goals/plans on this pair?

Yes I just saw that I put the wrong picture, I meant to show a crowntail female im sorry about that.

With the pair I want to experiment the dominance of the blue color and hopefully get some nice cloudy blues or reds (cause the female is actually redish).

In that case I'd suggest you pair your boy to a cambodian. You will end up with a variety of colors ranging from blue - fading to grizzle - and cellophane. You will also get more cambodian, even blue-ish ones. With this pairing you will be able to see the blue's dominance.

You could also see irid (green, steel blue, and royal blue) dominance in irid x red pair. But not as much as the above pair. A ... (something color) ... with red fins x steel blue = mainly blue with red on the fins, plus other color combo. Very little to no fry will be solid blue or red.
