I want to start out right. Good guy?

Is this fish a suitable guy for breeding? Obviously I'm new at this. I want to do this right. I want to do my best the first time, and I don't want to make a huge mistake. I have an excellent forum full of knowledgeable people. I love this guys colors. Hopefully this guy will be an acceptable starting point. Opinions?

If not the first one, I was thinking of purchasing the second.

Are you breeding for show, or just for pets? For show, the first would be a very nice starting point for a line of multicolors. For pets, either would be good.

Depends on what you are wanting, like mentioned.. show (or if you want to sell to people who breed/show) I would go with the first guy.. good form and not a rose/feather tail which is a big plus.

He has a nice wide dorsal, anal is not too long.. slight scoop.. would choose a female with a nice straight topline and a short anal. Otherwise he looks good.. figure out what color/s you are aiming for.. want to keep the grizzle look or focus on more of the multi colors, etc.

They are both suitable for breeding. I like them both and there is nothing wrong with either, it just depends what your going for.

Go with the first boy, he's got good color and nice form, I really like him as everyone said. The second looks kinda rosetil to me which is a big fault.

Thank you for all of the feedback everyone! I am in the process of speaking with the seller in regards of the first male. Now....to find a female! I just have to make a good game plan on what I want to do with the fry. The possibilities seem endless! (:

With the right lady you might be able to even breed show quality betta with him. Keep me posted on your pair once you get the girl, I might be snagging a HM from you in the future. ;)
