Yowza! Look at that red! Not a spec of iridescence on him. Very nice.

I think that he has the potential to go full HM if you condition him to. Allowing him to flare daily for 10-20mins will stretch his fins out. Judging by that first pic he already is a super delta so it wouldn't take much to get him to go full HM.

Yep. That's how you get HM babies :) All HM once started out as deltas. Letting the males flare is what gives them their spread. Branching does come into play but more important than branching is the webbing between the branches.. that is what stretches and that is what gives full spread.

Of course it's easier when they're little but it can still be done with adults to a certain extent. Your guy is so close already I wouldn't be surprised if after a few weeks of training he went full HM.

Wow! I never knew that! That's really interesting. I think I'll start training today! Does anyone know what color type he is? A solid maybe?
