Rosetails tend to have deformities in the offspring, like Short flowery caudals, bad misaligned or enlarged scaling and basically small dwarvish Bettas. I had a line of "to die for" Green Butterfly Halfmoons that I had trouble producing males from. I'd get 3 males out of a spawn of over 100. So I outcrossed to a Blue Butterfly Halfmoon. The Blue BFHM father had a couple wonky scales and very mild Rosetail effects so I thought nothing of it. Bad mistake. I got this mess.
