I love him, love him, love him -- or rather, I love his form...
Please include the seller if you're going to use a picture. Credit should be given.
He has a clean, smooth topline, a forward tilting dorsal, and beautiful symmetry. His anal is a little long, but not much.
Now, I do see some potential issues. His dorsal has a bit of a "stairstep." It's not bad, but it isn't good either. Those front rays need to be a bit longer.
The edges of his caudal are rounded, not sharp. Ideally, you want the the caudal to form a sharp D. Even in an OHM, you want good sharp edges there.
I think he's a rose tail. That sure looks like rose petals to me. Roses are judged by the same standard as HM.
What I don't like? His color. He doesn't have a good, clean division of color, and I'd like to see the perfect division - red on the fins, but blue on the body. No red patches or blotches on the body, no blue streaks on the fins. Butterfly banding should be an even 50/50 for a single band, or 33/33/33 for a triband. His doesn't match that, either.
