I have a male yellow vieltail that I would love to maybe breed in the future, I've been doing a lot of research and was wondering what everyone thought of him. My main concern is that he's a veiltail and would have to be pretty top notch for people to even consider taking in his fry.
Anyhow, here's his finage. He likes to flare at the heater and moves around, so it was rather difficult to get a clear picture. His caudal is a little short, not sure if it'll grow more, but he is rather unique looking.
Top Line, here's two images so you can get more views, it looks good to my untrained eye, except for a slight bump and tiny spoon.
Color: these images don't really show his color well, it's much deeper, so I posted this pic for reference.
And lastly, a question, if I were to breed him, I would breed him to a Cambodian female (fin type wouldn't really matter since vt is dominate) to hopefully clear up the body and deepen his color. But since most Cambodians have red fins, would that pairing lower my chances for yellow fry or am I just over thinking it?
