Thanks a ton! You have been really helpful. I don't know much about betta genetics, do you?

In the U.S yes but Canada no, I don't know a lot about the whole circuit because it is not in my country but there are shows all over that you can ship too. Try research it because I am not a ver reliable piece of information.

what is the purpose of the shows? competition? buy/sell/trade? are there cash prizes? or is it just to show them off and talk genes?

You collect points for winning, there are auctions often after that you can buy or sell fish in, it is a great way to prove you have quality fish and become a better known breeder. I don't know about prizes but you get a plack and ribbons to display in your fish room.

Bb123 is telling you most of what you need to know, but just to be clear, it would be rather cruel to start a rosetail line. They may look nice, but the excessive finance really weighs down the fish and you would get a ton of x factors- fry with really bad deformities that are caused by breeding rosetails. So I would stay away from breeding them.

I was thinking about a caudal fin that begins as a rosetail, but then becomes a CT very quickly. Kinda like a long-rayed combtail, but with a rosetail base instead of a Hm base. Could that work?

I don't really know what you mean but x factors would happen in all rosetails.

I suppose I want a feather/ combtail with longer rays, if that makes sense.
