It depends on how good their form is and if you have homes for the possible 100's of fry you get.

What tail type are they? It's often very hard to get nice girls at petstores, most are vt with boring colors.

No, there is not...

BUT vt is generally a lot harder to sell, common/cheap, and they are usually mutts- pretty much unpredictable genetics. Vt is also a very dominant trait, so even if you were to buy a nice hm male you would end up with roundtail/veiltail fry.

If it has good form then go for it
Also make sure to get a good hm female otherwise she will most likely destroy the frys finnage

Like I said, finding nice females in stores is the tricky part. Breeding a hm to a vt female will pretty much ruin the fry's finnage and you would have to breed for multiple generations to get good fins back.
