Is this striping normal for a 2 inch peacock?

Some of the stripes do not go from top to bottom, normal or would this be indicative of poor breeding? Also, this was sold as a German Red, does the orange coloring coming in point towards this being a male? ... 010144.jpg

To me, that fish is not of breeding caliber. The broken stripes are more abnormal than I would tolerate.

Pet fish quality. Could be a male, but you didn't mention size. If it's small, then I'd guess male.
Hope that helps...

so it does! :oops:

likely a male, though with these line bred peacocks that is not anything more than a 55% probability.
