Buy 2 fish that compliment each other. If your females ventral fins are a bit too long look for a male with shorter ones. If your male has a not so gear towline look for a female with a great top line. So when it comes to form always try and get a mate that will help fix the other faults.

As for color it is easy to have an idea of what you will get when you pick 2 fish of the same or similar color. If blue marbles are what you want find 2 blue marbles.

Most important is health. You want active fish that are big and strong. A male that makes a bubble nest is a good sign. A female that flares and is nice are round also good.
This!
But i am just bit confused with the towline though. Is it the top part?

It's the back or spine area. You want it to be straight or free of bumps and dips.

Stupid auto correct messes up my typing.

This is my female I am going to breed. She has a nice top line


I have a male I was going to breed to her but I am now thinking I need a different male. One with shorter venterals because hers are too long and split. That's one example.
