My orange OHM male, Quasar, has a bit of a rosetail. It doesn't seem to affect his quality of life at all - in fact, he's my feistiest fish! Always flaring and swimming around, never a dull moment with this guy. I think his branching is part of what makes him beautiful. I don't think the issue should be with branching so much, but with the strength of the rays. Look at Karen's fish, for instance. Hers have lots of branching, but they have amazingly thick, strong rays, which allow them to carry their huge fins well. Which is why I'm planning on outcrossing heavily to strong HMPK s if I continue my non-red HM line, to get nice strong rays.

Ive been considering crossing my OHM to a HMPK, the Rosetail quality seems difficult to manage, and risky in breeding for the young. What are the statistics on crossing OHM with HMPK? Is it usually a solid improvement? Or is there a bit of line breeding work involved?

Are Deltas doing bad because of the difficulty in making good ones?

No. Because they don't have a 180 degree spread on there caudals. Also crossing an HMPK to an HM results in HM's with thicker bodies & rays, and typically less branching
