Combtails are usually pretty messy. I am crossing halfmoon and crowntail to work toward crowntails with the halfmoon spread. My best first gen male looks to be a pretty good delta, who I will either pair with a halfmoon female and then cross the offspring, or cross him to one of my better hmxct females. It's kinda a time will tell thing, but with his spread, a halfmoon will likely be better, then cross the offspring to reset the crown tips.
It's going to be a good long while before I get something that really shows what I am working toward. In the meantime, combs galore! Luckily, I can put some into my sorority.
