Quality of Milton (rose / feather tail)

I'm curious as to what people think of miltons quality?
I don't plan on breeding or showing (don't think Australia has betta shows anyway!) but I would love some proper critique on him!

(Sorry if this isn't aloud)

I think he's pretty. But I think his tail should be more circular.

I don't agree with breeding that tail. Too branched and in future generation you get shorter tails, with more branching and the bad scales are close behind. He is pretty.. but you would be breeding pets. If you are heading to show quality.. need a better male.

Australia does have betta shows. I am not into the show scene here, but I believe we don't do any/many IBC shows, so you can purchase a fish and then show it.

I agree with Basementbettas. I don't like seeing people using fish with such excessive branching (think that fish would almost be classed as a 'feather tail') because you can end up with deformed offspring.

However, if you are not breeding or showing him, then it shouldn't be an issue. He makes for a pretty pet and he looks nice and healthy.

Oh I know that he shouldn't be bred and he never will but I was curious as to what people thought of his form (is his body straight, are his fins symmetrical etc)

Apart from the rosetail, his from dorsal ray is stubby and ideally broader and pointed forward, anal too long. Dorsal and anal have rough edges too. Hes got a nice strong body but his topline looks a little uneven by the dorsal.
He looks to have a clean colour with no red wash though

His tail is too short and heavily branched.. so he has no symmetry.

He's pretty, but I would listen to the experts. I know you said you weren't going to breed. And though there are flaws, he is pretty. :)
