    Decent quality fire?

    I've seen two or three different conversations, here, regarding the quality of fires in particular and what makes some good, and others not so good. So, if you don't mind a little pic spam, I'd sort of like some second opinions on the quality of my fire male? I think he's fairly clean, myself, but I haven't really seen enough fires to gauge just how much of a "true" fire he is.

    First of all, here are a couple pictures found on his breeder's website, from when he was very young.






    And here are some of my own unedited pics in different types of lighting. (My DSLR photos are on a different computer, and I really don't feel like grabbing a USB drive and going through all the trouble of moving them onto this computer and uploading them to the internet and all, so... easy-access, mediocre camera phone pics it is, then!)







    And this one is directly after a shed, but it was like 3 AM, so the lighting is pretty bad.



    What do you think? Good for breeding?

    Pretty reduced, good color, nice blushing. Definitely breeding worthy. I'd put him to an enchi!

    Nice example of the morph. I'd be happy to put that with anything you want to add fire too.

    Looks pretty good to me! And I agree with Mike, put him to enchi. That's the first thing I thought of when I saw his banding.
    If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies.
