Betta Genetics?

Are there any good sites for the betta genes, like dominant, recessive, color, fin styles.

Or who could help me?
A homozygous hmpk female
And a homozygous hm male,
What would be the outcome of crosding them?

I'm just curious. :) Thanks guys :)

Is hm or hmpk dominant? They'll have hm finnage, but long fin is dominant to short? That's my understanding.

Most fin genes are semi dominant excluding vt

Crossing a HM to a HMPK will render offspring that are HMPK with longer-than-usual fins, or HM with shorter-than-usual fins. Technically speaking longfinned bettas have the dominant gene, but in actuality you won't get 100% full length. Majority of them will be somewhere in the middle.

You can start with the stickies.

Here are a few sites for further reading.

HM x HMPK = Theoretically should produce mostly long fins because long fins are dominant. You will also get short fins and in between fins (too long to be PK but too short to be HM).
