What are your goals with this spawn? Color? Tail types? Or just experimental but with healthy fish?

Okay, so you would then start with a DT and a CT ideally and work your way from there. DTCT is still fairly rare in the hobby as it is hard to achieve but if you work at it through your lines I'm sure you could come up with a DTCT eventually! So don't use any VT's then, you want to start right off with DTxCT or if you could actually find a DTCT Cambo, that would be better lol but I know that is going to be extremely rare!

I would not use Milk for the breeding because he looks like he's got dragon scaling. If you want a real, clean Cambo you want no iridescence on the body which Dragon Scaling will introduce the iridescence which you don't want in a true Cambodian. Do you have pictures of the new male you got?

Not bad, their fins will need a lot of work and he's not a real Cambodian as he's got some flecks of color through his body and iridescence on his fins which are not desired in real Cambo's. If you don't care about real Cambo's and just want something light in body and red fins then you can do whatever you want, I'm just telling you about what the standards would be if you wanted to show these fish after you breed and such.

I would need flaring pictures and clearer pictures of both to really judge on body confirmation though.

Yeah, that's fine, I know it can be hard to wait for the perfect male/female or even find them. You should be able to perfect the line in a few generations though; color wise the tail type will take longer though to make really nice!

Well a CT with a 180 spread is much more desirable than a CT that has anything less than 180 degrees that would denote a HM. DTCT is going to take a long time to really get anything good from the spawn unless, you of course, started with a DTCT but you don't have that so it's really up to you in the end. Do you want something that is going to take a long time and quite a few generations to prefect and make nice or get a tail type that already exists well enough and just make Cambodian CT's that have 180 degree spread of a HM?
