Critique White Wedding?

Ok, so I just got a new betta, he is kinda ugly as far as coloring goes but he caught my eye, and I named him White Wedding. He literately glows under blue light so that is kinda cool and he is a double tail. I am planning on breeding him so what should I look for in a female? Please point out any and all flaws because I want show his offspring. Also you can`t really tell but he is butterfly with clear fin edges. Thank you :D

That's awesome! I think double tail bettas are really cool.

Do you see anything I need to touch up on? Does he have what is considered to be a "spoon head"? I don`t really know what that is so anything will help ;)

Honestly I know nothing about what to look for when breeding bettas....but their are tons of great breeders on this site who could help you out a lot. But if you bought him in a pet store, I wouldn't breed him: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=46260

Wow thanks! I measured him and his body is one inch long (the same size as GIRL, who is 4 months old) so does size have anything to do with age?

I really don't know, but from what I've heard there isn't really any reliable way to tell a bettas age unless you know when it was born.

Nothing wrong with breeding pet store bettas.. honestly.. many champion show fish came from pet store bettas.

Hard to tell you as the pictures are very tiny.. can't really define his fins/color/lines, etc. But his fins look even and uniformed.. which is good :)

Size has nothing to do with age.. it depends more on food.
