The other females have a nice long body and topline.

So, what causes messed up toplines? Is it that the vertabrae don't change quick enough as the body proportion does, therefore resulting in bones that aren't straight or what?

Eh not crazy bout that last girl. Her top line doesn't look great at all and she's got red ventrals. I know to get rid of a red wash you introduce a yellow wash but I'm not sure if it goes the other way as well. Perhaps Trilobite can chime in on that.

EDIT: I'm not sure exactly what causes it but he looks like he might have some DT in his lineage somewhere. DT's cause shorter bodies and generally a messed up top line from what I've seen.

That female has a dent in her topline. You want it looking smooth and gently curving to move with the body of the fish.

Yes I realized that and noticed the blush in her fins. That's why I put her up there to check that I am recognizing a body that I have an issue with. I'm seeing it now.

And doesn't certain diseases cause the body to get messed up.

The first three look like they have nice body lines to them. Now I am just not sure as to the caudal ray number and taper of the anal fin combining with his issues.

I think so but most of these are born like this and there's nothing that can be helped for them. Usually DT's have deformed spines and their offspring as well because DT in general is a deformity so then they would just breed more deformities. But I'm sure there are other factors as well like growth stunting if the fry's water was not changed properly or as frequently as needed and stuff like that.

I think you should get the girl that trilobite posted looking back down. Fins are shorter than the one I posted first, ventrals are black so that would probably counterbalance the yellow wash in him. All fins meet although first ray isn't long but that minor at this point. And she's a Dragon which will help keep his Dragon line going as well and she has a nice gentle curve to her, no bumpy top line at all so that will certainly help balance him out. She's got great color too
