Arrow .:~> Wondering what I would get if i bred these~>:.

Well this is and interesting pair, the dad appears to be a DTPK? or somthing close.. he came from a spawn where the Dad i think was PK and the mom was hmdt..most of his sibblings were short bodied hmdt ...i think im lucky he turned out this way...ok thats him...the female also came from a spawn where the dad was a PK and the mom a regular halmoon female. Now i was wondering if i crossed this pair if i would get any single tailed Plakat offspring? or would that be a long shot given the backgorunds of both fish.

the pair:

You'd get marbles and multis with HM and HMPK fins. The dorsals will look nice :D The fry will carry DT.

oh that'd be kool...but im prolly the only guy around where i live with fish like these...because PK and HMPK and not very common here in trinidad..only one place i know that has them and they are super expensive like $300-$400 and pair...so not many people have them..so im happy if i get PK and hmpk or anthing related to pk from this spawn..then i can use one of my copper/gold/black dragon female and breed it with one of the offspring or even this male...and maybe work my way into maybe some pk with copper dragon scales?

the red is for surely dominant so most of them might end up red, they will carry on DBT gene, am not a professional, this is what am learning on XP i just showing basics ;p there dorsals are great though :D and not sure about the anal

Wondering what will you get with those?

A whole lotta lovin' lol j/k Those look like nice pair, would be cool if a few came out superDTPK which I doubt. yeah I could see it on the father's side with more splash of red

if the DT has that pink/white face as a result of piebald condition, you probably won't see that trait in your fry. 50% or so will carry it, as piebald is recessive in other animals (i don't know for sure about in bettas yet, but i suspect the same.)

V's the expert but i'd say you're going to get mostly black bodies with the green wash, and probably mostly red fins. some variations on that with less green wash, and/or black fins, red fins edged in black... ect.
