I recently got this boy (I'll admit it was an impulse buy encouraged by my fiancÚ
). I want to breed him since I really like his color and haven't seen one like him before. I would like to work on shortening his anal fin a bit.
I asked the breeder for a similar female (the first female below, not sure if they are related or not), but I feel she has too much red wash in her and I will end up with many reds. I also can't see her topline very well from the picture so I'm a little hesitant.
I found this second girl that I really like. I think her topline is pretty off but she has a nice 180 degree caudal. She's a copper-based black. But I don't know if I'll have a shot at getting offspring similar to the father.
Any tips, and opinions would be great!
