use dt or dthm to improve hm fins?

I was wondering if wanted to have a halfmoon with great finnage, what double tail would I use to improve dorsal and anal fins? Do you automatically use dthm because I want my end result to be halfmoon? Would using a reg dt sometimes be better to avoid too many branches in caudal?

Using non HM DT may result in dellta T because HM (the 180* spread) is recessive. I'd suggest you use HMDT and inbreed the HM (whether DT or single tail). Then you can work on making the caudal pointy (if still rounded) and/or making the fins more balanced.

This is not saying that using dTDT will not result in HM. It's only more work. Make sure that at least the female is HM (whether HMDT or HM single tail). IME you'd have a bigger chance of getting HM.
