Wow! In only three months? Do you power grow? And I would breed him to a over half moon of similar color because it looks like he is badly, if even reaching 180 degrees.

They all need an HM spread and sharpness in the caudal edges. Try to find a nicely branched girl with 180 spread and SHARP edges.

The second and third boys also have kind of spiky (messy) dorsal and anal fins, so if you are breeding these, make sure that the female is also very clean in those areas.

When looking for someone to add to the line, look for a clean dorsal, level anal, and long first and last rays in their tail and first rays in dorsal to give it that sharpness. Also try to look for an OHM to give them more of a spread.
