um - if you want 'gentle' you'd best post in the Fishy Showroom. As the info at the top of the page states,

This is a forum where your fish will be discussed WARTS AND ALL and constructive feedback on the fish will be given.

Please do not post photos your fish here if you are not prepared for frank feedback about its faults/attributes!

Honestly? Those are pet quality fish. Bettas need to be at full flare to be judged properly. But I'd be surprised if they improved much even if they were at full flare.

The first one looks like it's suffered from fin nipping or fin rot. He might be carrying the metallic gene so if you really didn't have anything better and you had your heart set on metallics then I guess you would use him but pick a copper female with good finnage and no red wash.

The CT doesn't look to have terribly good finnage either. Too little iridescence on the body, too much on the fins. I wouldn't breed with this fish.

No matter what they look like, they're still bettas and bettas make great pets. What they lack in looks they'll make up in personality. :giggle:

These photos make it difficult to judge the fish. Clear, side-on, full flare shots are best for critique.

Fish 1

Body: Seems full and "strong", however there is some irregularity of the back from dorsal to mouth.

Caudal: Ray branching is excessive. Breeding such fish can produce extreme rosetails, http://www.bettaterritory.nl/BT-AABRosetails.htm

Dorsal: The base should be broader but otherwise the fin is quite full.

Anal: Ideally should be the same length as the caudal.

Ventrals: Actually quite nice and full.

Colour: Good distribution, but some red and white on the ventrals.

If you choose to breed this fish, be very careful. Breed to a female with very little branching, and in general one that complements his other traits.

Fish 2

Body: Could be stronger/fuller

Fins and Colour: Very difficult to judge from this photo.
