Pros? Cons?

My new HMPK male flaring. I would love to know what the Pros and Cons to his overall form/conformation are, as I'm learning to recognize them. (: Feedback appreciated!

He has a nice dorsal, a very nice dorsal! His tail could be shaped a bit better, and could be just a smidge longer. He has a nice topline. His scales are a little messy looking, I can't tell if its his color or they're just messy. Are you thinking of breeding him?

Yes I was thinking that I might. Maybe a to a nicely finned HM or HMPK? What do you think?

Yeah

And his scales aren't as messy as the photo makes them look, but he does have splashes of the pale pink and gold along his body like his fins. O: he also built a lovely bubble nest while I was at school today. :) just thought I'd comend him for that!

If you breed him to a nice HMPK female, with clean scales and symmetrical finnage, I think you'll get some nice offspring! If you breed him to a HM female I think you'll also get some nice offspring, but you may end up with some tail thats are too long to be considered HMPKs but too short to be considered HMs

I found some females on aquabid that I think would cross well with him!

Those are some pretty girls! I really like the red, but am trying to only buy from US sellers. (bah shipping costs) I'll have to keep my eye out for one around here...Thanks for the feedback!

Overall his fins are decent. His anal needs work though.
