Should I use any of my males for breeding?

I have these 2 males and I'm thinking of breeding one or the other, the blue one has an episode of tail biting right now, and the red one has a slightly deformation on his lower tail fin.

I don't know their parent's background either since I got them from petco.

Also, if ever I'll be breeding them, which tail style would be best? I want to spawn CT but not sure if it'll work out with HM but a spawn of HM would work too

Opinions are very much appreciated, thanks

I think (Im not sure) spwning a HM with a C results in full suns (I think thats what they are called) though you would have to spend a while working on the fins (CTs are HARD to get good fins)

Both ofyour boys are GORGEOUS though, lol
Can' say whether or not you should spawn.... but if you do decide to, try to get a female from a breeder so you know her genes

getting a female from a breeder might be impossible cause I don't know how it goes about when it comes to paypal payments, I'd rather just swipe my card/type my credit card info lol

On Aquabid, once you win, your information goes to the breeder, and their email information goes to you so you can pay them through paypal. You will need to set up an account with Aquabid first...
Hope I answered your question. You can also ask the breeder of the fish you are interested in questions about the fish once you have an account set up.

Ah, so anyway, what fin type and color would be most appreciated when I breed my blue cambodian or my copper red?

Since red copper appears to be a HM, the other, I think is a veil tail? Anyway the female type would be up to you. Personally, I wouldn't breed the veil tail. The HM I would breed to a copper HM female.

The blue doesn't look like a VT to me... more like a SD/HM. You would have to get a full flare shot :)
