Need a yellow male

My newest pairs arrived today and I have decided I'm not breeding the male.
He's not clean bodied enough and he's slightly spoon headed. The female, however, is exceptionally clean. Not a speck on her!

I'm looking for a clean yellow HMPK or HM male.
I always check aquabid and the classifieds first but I'm trying to cover my bases. Bonus points if he's show quality!

I have NO problem at all in paying good money for a quality fish but he must be yellow and clean bodied.

I forgot all about ebay. I took a look and the one I have is probably a bit better than those. If all else fails I'll breed them and hope for the best. I'm aiming for nr cambodians, regular cambodians and yellows. I'll need the nr cambos later on.

With the right girl, even the small blemishes can easily be worked out.. so if you like the male's color, still breed him and then breed the best of the babies either back to the mom or to each other. He may not be a total waste if his faults are just slight - the girl will make up a difference enough to make it a good spawn.. in theory anyways :)

B28 has nice dorsal. But has split ventrals.

I agree with myates - breed back to female for better colors.
TBH, I can't see the color flaw in the picture; both male and female look clean yellow.

B28? All three pics are the same male. He has random black spots and light black on his tail and dorsal. I feel like his dorsal would improve hers but I'm stuck on preserving her perfectly clean bright color.
