Would you breed these two?

The picture of the female was taken when I first got her about a month or so ago, its not the best picture but would you breed the pair? I have picked these two since Dotty the female has marbled up nicely and is showing a lot of gold in her fins and I am hoping to one day breed this in more but not anytime soon, so don't all fret I just want to hear your opinions on my selection they are not from the same spawn but are from the same breeder and have the same parents

Dotty


Elmo

I think they'd make beautiful babies... but I'd look up some info on Rosetails before you decide for sure.

Edit: That is, IF he's a Rosetail. I myself can't really tell the complete difference between a Rose and a Halfmoon who's a bit lazy... LOL.

Lol, yeah hes a halfmoon, although his tail does look fairly bigger than 180 when he flares so i'm not 100% whether hes OHM or HM lol

They'd make a decent pair. How many ray branchings does the female have? She doesn't look HM to me so you may have a smaller percentage of HM in the spawn but they should have some nice colorings.

What would I most likely get if I use this pair? as the female has little gold colouring then i'm assuming there wouldn't be a lot in the first spawn, right?

Great pair!!
I wonder if some of the fry will come out with cello/red marble coloring! That would be awesome!
Best of luck with the pair!

I definately think there will be marbles and a few cello but Elmo the HM actually has blue in his caudal, ventrals and body so there maybe blue aswell, I just really want the gold colouring lol I wont be breeding for a long time yet, still have a lot of research to do

I think you'd get red marbling. Blue in red is undesireable (if your going into that breeding). But anyway marbles are always changing so who know's what you'll end up with.
