Exclamation Who makes a good pair?

Considerations: similar colors, dragon scaling, overall quality.

Male to match with:




Females:










#4 is my favorite as she has white, red, dragon scaling, blue, and a tiny bit of cellophane. I do lament over the green and lack of baby blue however. Please share your thoughts with me!

Greentea how many fish do you own exactly? And do you have any that aren't drop dead gorgeous?!

I feel like he'd look great with any of the females, but I agree that #4 would make a striking match. They're all lovely though...you definitely couldn't go wrong with any of them!

I have a sorority of 10 as well as 3 giant males right now, 2 regular sized males (one of which is old and on deaths door). I'll be getting 4 regular sized males and a few more females to add to my sorority!

My original plan was to breed giant marbles, and regular hmpk marbles but I've accepted I don't have the space to jar giant males in my apartment. I will most like be selling 2 of my giant males as well as 1 half giant female and 1 giant female to a member I met here who has his own house and a strong desire to breed giants like I did. I'm going to focus my collection on who I can spawn.

And no... they're all gorgeous ;) I spend a lot of time picking them and am really picking about it. It annoys me sometimes, I'll see a really unique or pretty fish but if body, fins, rays, etc aren't right, I can't do it.

I like the forms of female #1 & #3 with 3 being my favorite because of her coloring.

I love them all! They're so amazing. I'm seriously loving the koi look!!! Thanks a lot! :P
The white one makes me kinda hesitant though, just because of her eyes seeming to be clouded. I've got a platinum male with the same thing and he can't seem to see very well. Does she have any issues? Odin seems to be on the partially blind side, poor guy lol
You can kinda see it on his right eye.

Yeah I noticed that as well. If you look at the other two females lying down though, it looks like they're all "looking down", know what I mean? So it's hard to tell. I think if I was going to get white, I'd also want the scales totally opaque white, hers are only opaque in some places.

Any of them would be nice. I would go with one or four personally though.

I think he'd look striking with any of them, but in my opinion especially with the second girl or the fourth girl. These two both share similar colors and dragon scaling with him, and they have nice fins (although by the looks of it so do the other girls, haha).~ :3
