That is a very nice looking fish. I especially like his body structure and ventrals. I haven't read the CT standards but personally I would look for a fish with straighter rays. He had nice color but to really tell if he's top quality we would need several pictures of him from more than just the one angle.
Its a very good looking fish although.
EDIT: I looked up the CT standards. This guy looks pretty good except for a few things.
"Curled or bent ray extensions are each a MINOR fault".. He doesn't have many but there are a few.
"Non-symmetrical spaces between ray extensions are each a MINOR fault.".. This is most noticeable in his caudle.
Besides that he looks pretty good. Is he your fish? If your looking to start with stock with showing potential I think he could be a good start if you got the right female.
