first generation, and even 2nd and 3rd generation halfsuns have very messy fins. I agree GOOD halfsuns look awesome, but it'll take you a year or two of line breeding to get to nice fins.

Only a year?
I could do it but idk what i would do with all the fry with "messy" fins, cause im pretty sure noone would want them,
I guess i would just have to see how everones fins turn out, then pick the best 2, keep them, cull the rest and breed the 2 i kept for better finnage?

I always keep after a heavy cull maybe 6 personally if you have a goal in mind you never know who wont be able to breed if something comes up or someone doenst like someone else. And you can probably rehome a few nicer looking ones around here and to maybe pet stores.

Cause honestly I wouldn't mind a F1 half sun pair and I think many people can feel the same way especially new breeders who want to try something cool but dont want to put the effort in :P

Well I do have a CT female now :) and already have a HM male, so maybe once i get a bunch of live plants, lots more cups, and food for the babies i'll spawn them first
But i dont have $$ righ now to buy food or plants
......But i remember my dad saying a while back that we could order live plants offline....... Maybe I'll have to text or call him sometime soon and see if he'll still do that..... Lol

So the off chance that my dad calls me to have me come spend the night at his house so i can baby sit for him tomorrow, him and my step mom were also throwing out jars from their cabnits, i got about 15 jars, all but 2 have lids, its a good start :)
I told him any more jars they get save them for me (alot of the stuff they order from their company are in jars, like the pasta sauce jars lol)
And on top of that i think i have 15 or so petco cups
