I dont understand why you are so set in a rosetail shape?
Earlier in this thread you said something along the lines of "I'd like to know what I'm doing now rather than ending up with a ton of poorly bred fish later on"
well, honestly, anything with rosetail genetics will have some deformities in the line. Rosetailing itself is a deformity and is not saught after. You may think it's pretty, and you may get a few sales..but you will not be able to show them, but you wouldnt with a combtail either.
I personally would stay far away from rose and feathertails. Feathertailing is still on the same path as a rose....just has even more rays.
When you mix CT with anything, you end up with the same result as a VT mix. Messy finnage.
If it were me, I'd stick with CT, or maybe try to make a CTPK line..or even try to push some HM lines into the CT to see if you can get a better tail spread...but I would avoid the idea of a Rose/Feather-anything.
