I'm putting this in Breeding instead of Chat to try to avoid all the "get him.. he's so pretty!" comments and try to get some real opinions.
I'm looking to get 1-4 new fish, either gender. I'm not really focusing on one specific color but rather just play around with different colors and see which ones I like best.
Here are some fish I've been looking at with pros and cons listed. Tell me what you think of each and which one (or ones) you think are the best. Remember I'm looking for breeding stock so take into account form and finnage as well as color.
#1 Black/Yellow butterfly from Aquatech_NY.. $25 but already has a bid in on him.
Pros.. love the color and he has decent fins.
Cons.. pricey and could turn into a bidding war. I really don't want to pay much more than $25 for him, especially since he doesn't come with a female.
#2 Yellow (MG) pair from Betta_Affinity price $30
Pros.. decent price and a good seller. Colors are something I would like to work with. Female looks nice.
Cons... separate auctions so if I don't win both I don't get the pair, male's fins are only so/so (I need to ask for clearer pictures).
#3  Females from the same seller.
#3 Light copper..
#4 Blue female..
Pros.. same seller so I could buy both and save on shipping. Both have decent fins and color.
Cons.. I don't really have a male that would be a good match for #3, #4 has a reserve so she's more than $15.
There are some Giants also being offered but they go out pretty soon. If they are re-posted I might add them to the list also. I'd like to work with Giants if I can get a pair at a decent price.
