.... if your goal is to produce Halfmoon offspring. I suggest either a turquoise, steel blue, or royal blue Halfmoon female. I hope this helps.
I love that color, too... I can't comment on his "conformation," as I'm not a breeder. But, per the color genetics info that I've read, if you match him with:
a) Turquoise female: offspring will be 100% turquoise.
b) Royal blue female: offspring will be 50% turquoise, 50% royal blue
c) Steel blue female: off spring will be 100% royal blue.
That said, I don't guarantee these results!
It's just based on what I read here: http://www.bettas-jimsonnier.com/genetics5.htm
