fish 1: Caudal is not symmetrical, while the anal fin dips into an odd long end that is too rounded. For reds I'd rather see a clean body rather than a grizzled look.
fish 2: The caudal is a lot better than the first, however the anal fin still has that same characteristic (which seems to bug me). The color is interesting, I do not mind it.
fish 3: Hard to tell if the caudal even has the 180 degree, however I do notice it is not as rounded as it could be as it dips less than halfway around. Anal fin again has that elongated fault. Coloration is great, koi happens to be my favorite.
fish 4: Caudal is decent, almost an 180, and decently even as well. The anal fin is really bugging me. The dorsal is wider, meeting with the caudal nicely. The coloration is not a clean dragon line, but could be bred to another dragon to hopefully improve that line.
fish 5: Dorsal and caudal are decent, with the caudal having a rounder, cleaner look to it shape-wise. The The anal again has the elongated fault. Coloration is interesting, throwing orange and green together, with the full blue dragonscale look.
Since I am in Canada, if I were to dish out 50.00 to 100.00 for shipping, I would not want to pay 30.00 per fish as these, mainly because I would make myself out to be extremely picky. That is another thing... Price. 30.00 is a great price for quality breeders, however, only if they meet the utmost requirements.
It's hard finding fish on AB in Canada, let alone what I am looking for x.X
Anyone else have comments on these fishies? I'm basically teaching myself with pictures of the fish on AB, paired with what I've learned from what people have said on here on certain flaws, or strong lines.
