Suppose to be metallic but very poor shine.

Either a male(which should be much cheaper) or a female that was underfed or went through health problems/overstock.

Split fin could be an indication of poor habitat and pectoral fins poor shape.

No allignment of scales and colour not the same throughout the body and not a clean head.

Almost looks like an anchorworm at the tail tube? which could indicate bad habitat/water conditions.

Very thin tail tube which is not good.
