Right I understand what you are saying but she is something to compare and think about :) I'd like to see smoother/cleaner fin edges on him also.

Yup! I'll keep an eye out for other girls as well to see if anything else catches my eye

She's nice too. But she's got a higher ray count, isn't that not ideal in this situation since he's got more of a rose tail? Or does 6 ray's not matter as much.

Here is another one that I am looking at... Her anal fin is not full, tapers. She is light blue. Her fins are straight. Dorsal tail is closer to caudal. She does not have a higher ray count. I think... tell me if I am wrong. LOL! I'm learning here.

I am guessing a straighter anal fin would be desired not tapered?

She has 4 rays, so she's on the lower end which is good for this situation. She is beautiful, but my problem would be how her anal fin tapers like that.

I'm not sure if that matter's much, I feel as if it would just reduce the anal portion on the father, yes? Probably not, but just seems logical

Although her fins are great, I think the first thing to fix is his topline and body which the slimmer, longer females will help with that.
