I found this female on aquabid while I was browsing, what does everyone think of her as a potential breeder? Part of me is worried that her color is photoshopped, though the seller's feedback is all positive so I'm hopeful.
She is pretty, but the photo quality is pretty bad to accurately tell what color she is. I am assuming you are breeding for colors and tail types, so it would probably be best to be 100% positive of the appearance.
Yeah, I would be breeding for her color and I have a HM male I would pair her with so I would have some HMs in the spawn. I'm always a bit hesitant when the picture quality isn't the best, though part of me is still tempted to get her because even if she's not really that color, her fins look nice, plus I've been wanting a HM female for a while and no one sells them. I'll keep thinking on it, thanks for your input turtle10. :)
If you're going for colors, I suppose she's ok.
But in terms of form; her dorsal is too far apart from her caudal. If that's her total spread, her caudal isn't wide enough and has rather round edges for a HM.
I got Houdini in December, and since he was probably at least 3 months old at that point, that would put him around 5 months old. Unfortunately, that means that I probably won't breed him since he'll be too old by the time I would have everything ready. Thanks for the info and input on Houdini indjo. :)
