Arrow Pick a Pair!

So it has become apparent that Aoki and Nino HATE each other now. Aoki wants absolutely nothing to do with him, which is totally understandable. I think I'll let Nino grow up before I try to spawn him again, he obviously has an attitude problem. It also seems that Senshi will not be up to another spawn in the near future. So time for a new second pair!

Here are my conditioned males/females. Which one combination would be most interesting?

So far I am leaning towards:
Aiba and Ebony
Anakin and Kuki
Anakin and Aoki
Sho and Aoki
Sho and Ebony
Do any of these crosses catch your eye?

Aiba (Red Platinum OHM)

I love Sho's color but he as a weird flip in his tail... Does anyone know if that is inheritable or if it is an injury?

I don't have a pic of Anakin flaring, but his fins are also really nice, he has a prefect 180 spread.


The girls:
Aoki (Blue HM)

Ebony (Black Copper HM)

Kuki (Red Copper SD/HM)

I say...

Aiba x Kuki
Sho x Aoki
Anakin x Ebony.

Sho is gorgeous. <3
My boy Aro (turquoise marble) also has the extra bits of folded fin, but when he flairs it mostly goes away, I'd like to know about this too, maybe our boys are just special. haha.

I like dark colors .... so I'd go with Anakin as my first choice and Sho as an alternative. Does Sho have rose in him?

for the female I prefer Aoki because she has DT genes which people say can make HM fins lean forward.
Is Ebony's dorsal folded (in the picture) or is it shaped like that? If it's shaped like that, I'd go for kuki as the reserve.

Thank you for all the suggestions!
I'm leaning towards Anakin and Aoki or Aiba and Ebony

Indijo, I'm not sure if Sho has RT in him, he does have excessive branching but I wouldn't say he is petaled. Do you see that flip/fold in his caudal? Do you know if that is inheritable? The fold/flip is why I am hesitant to breed him...

Ebony has a pretty nice dorsal, it doesn't look like in the picture. I'd say it is somewhere in between Aoki's dorsal and kuki's dorsal.

Yes I see it. Whether genetic or not depends on how he got it. Sometimes bad care when young can cause it (he has excessive branching so his fins are more fragile) - thus not passed on. If you know whether any of his siblings has such folding - then you could assume it's genetic. But otherwise, it's safe to say it isn't.

I THINK it's not genetic. But I'm not sure. That's why I didn't comment on it. I bred one like that which I thought was genetic because it was folded since young (my own breeding) - but NON of the offspring had folded caudals. Tbh nowadays I would breed any defects but rose. IMO such defects are easy to breed out but rose curlings always appear for many generations - even when I crossbreed offspring to other, new genes.

Mmkay, I might do Sho X Ebony then. I think Aoki needs a break. I hope it isn't inheritable, but the fact that you breed some similarly is reassuring. Would you say Sho is a RT? I don't know what his spawn siblings look like since he is an import.
