Halfmoons bettas are one of the hardest bettas to breed. Untill you lock in the halfmoon trait, you will get deltas. Some while 2 or 3 months old will be deltas and by the 4th or 5th month they will be halfmoons. You can breed 2 halfmoons and still get some deltas. In order to have a good chance of getting halfmoons, you need to have 4 Ray or more bettas. I have never seen a halfmoon with less than 4 rays. And what gives you a high precent is having a true halfmoon female with 8 rays, if you have a good male and that 8 Ray female then you can start locking in the halfmoon trait. Then all you have to work on color and paterns
