Those are bite marks, and female CT's fins are more ordered than that.
Mixing tail types will lead up to messy fins in fry.

I didn't know what kind I had so I was hoping they were the same. She was a bit frazzled when I picked her up, and I'm not too good with female tail types so I was hoping all would be well.

Female fins are the same as males except their fins are shorter.

Well since it's my first time breeding and there didn't seem to be that many eggs (not any more than 100, I'm sure) then I probably won't have too many survivors. I have some friends who are willing to take them from me - one friend in particular wants a sorority so will likely take most the females I end up having.

Why? Are you suggesting I just cull the whole spawn?

Well.. yeah... no ct thats for sure she looks like a vt easy he might be a hm cant tell sense the pic dosent show his tail. I would expect plenty of weak delta's. Fewer rays is dominant over many (why vt usually genetically is dominant over hm). They will probably mostly be red with maybe a blue wash and a little white. Good luck with them red is the first color to show in babies!

Edit: Culling a spawn is a personal decision dont let other people tell you what to do with your fish. If you are set up to care for babies I would go ahead and keep them.
