Uh yeah he's probably not really that color, he'd be a bad dad too I bet... Yeah right, do it! He's so pretty!! Sorry I'm an awful enabler :)

I honestly do suspect he's not that color. He's described as a "silver mustard." He looks like spun gold in those pictures....

Um... He has split ventrals and that's a fault by show standards? Yeah. I'm grasping at straws here. He is a gorgeous fish.

Sigh. All the girls I have are halfmoons except for that one double-tail, though. What do you end up with if you cross a HMPK with a HM?

All long tail, unless one of the girls has some PK gene in her, since short fin is recessive. You won't get all perfect 180 degree spreads since even breeding two fish with 180 degree spreads won't get you all 180 degree spread offspring, but a good number should be.

Or, you could get the "sibling female" that the breeder will offer you as soon as auction ends....
Figured I'd join on the enablers' band wagon :)

I bought him. I can't help it. He is too gorgeous.

What do you guys think of this female to go with him?

I have so much blue in my sorority already, but I adore her green-looking fins. They're both supposedly mustards, and they both have that black edging on their fins. (What is that called? Angel? Dragonfly?)

Congrats, he is gorgeous and so is she. Isn't it called black lacing? Not sure but I believe I bought a red HM on aquabid that had black edges and they referred to it as black lace/lacing.

Hm. Feng pointed out to me that her fins probably don't actually look green, and that it's the background behind her making them look that way. I'm sure he's right, and I'm not sure I'm interested in her without that. :-/

that edging is what originally made mustard gases mustard gases. That's the difference between a bi color and a mustard according to most sources
