I have several imported males to choose to breed from. They will either be paired with a blue marble female, a koi marble, or a monster marble. All females have better toplines than the males, and have decent form.
However, Iím finding it hard to decide what male to use. I probably wonít use the HM as I donít particularly like HMs, but I am leaning towards the red fancy male even though his anal is a bit long.
Sorry in advance for the atrocious photos. My blue marble wouldnít flare (he sustained some damage to his scales in shipping) and everyone else thought it was fun to flare right at the back of the tank.
I will get some shots up of the females later today.
Also donít just go by colour. I am looking to create a nice line of marble HMPKs here and want to cull out any obvious faults that will be hard to correct.
