You might try leaving your female in the jar longer so the male has time to get his high jinks out. Maybe even condition the pair so they can see each other the entire time so he is used to seeing her. I wouldn't necessarily give up on him quite yet.

Oh I'm not going to give up on him I'll try breeding him again sometime. However I either want to get another male to breed to my DTHM, or maybe get a semi-aggresive female that I could try spawning to the pastel boy.

What about these guys?

Metallic Blue HM
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1289706409

Metallic Multi HM (Has a bit of fin damage from hard water but it looks like he has good branching and a nice dorsal)
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1289702714

Red/White Copper (A super delta, but comes from an HM show line. Beautiful color. Finnage is a bit lacking,but I could cross him to my DTHM and then cross offspring to a nice HM or OHM)

Thanks.

I don't particularly like any of those guys. They all seem to have very short bodies IMO. Out of those three I would say the Blue one is the best but his anal is a little long (as they are on all 3), but you could work on that.

Ah, I see. :)
Currently my top 3 are....

1) Purple Copper HM

2) Metallic Blue HM

3) Copper Red SdT

However I have e-mailed both sellers and neither of them have gotten back to me. :/

I'm also thinking about maybe spending a bit more money on a male, so I could get one with better quality...

if you invest in a higher quality male you'll get higher quality babies! Might be worth the money in the long run!

Thats what I'm thinking. :)

The breeder of the purple copper, emailed me some pics of other young HMs he has available. I asked him about their age and prices. When he gets back to me, I'll post the pics he sent me. :)

All of them have PK in their genes...they all have short ventrals and/or non proportional tails...of the three I'd say the last is the best in that respect...but the first has sharper edges...so actually maybe the first even though his tail is smaller. I still like that purple copper, personally.

That's what I've been thinking too. Either the first one (From the last three) or the purple copper...
