New male?

Hey there! Betta_affinity has a nice black copper male I was considering adding into my blue coppers (for better dorsals and since most of my fry are getting black fins).

Here he is:

Gorgeous fish, but TBH his fins really aren't that great. I would personally look for a fish with better finnage.

Yeah I'm not liking his caudal but I just want to get the dorsals in mine to get a bit wider.

Well first we look at show winning fish, study the form, look at the rays in the fins, study the dorsal (skinny dorsals are a fault and IMO can make a nice fish look ugly) and the caudal.

For example:
This doubletail is hands down the best I've ever seen. Notice the wide dorsal and even doubletail lobes.


(this fish was bred by Karen MacAuely aka Martinismommy who is a show winner).

Here is an ok fish but not the best:


Here is where the faults are:


Green: How it should look
Red: faults

Mr.V why don't you get that DT bred by Karen? I saw him in person the last time I was there and he is AMAZING!

Because I'm not sure how he'll do in my line. I love the fins but it's the color issue.

Still, neither of them have metallic or copper, I'm considering it for maybe an offshoot line but I like the guy above better ;P

Well the purplish guy will most likely throw you multis, and MGs. And since yours are dragons, I think it might be an interesting cross....
