Question genetics

Hey, im trying to decide what color pair i want to breed. i have no idea what genes are dominant or recessive. i saw the sticky where they go through a few genes but they dont cover very many. Is there a site or place where they list dominant/ recessive genes. or can help show what a percentage of my offspring will be when they are born?

Thanks

http://www.bettysplendens.com/articles/home.imp . Pretty much everything you will ever need. The two big dominant genes are red and blue.

agree with matt, bettysplendens.com is an excellent resource for learning betta genetics, there's also Jim Sonnier's old site ( I don't think he really update it anymore last time I check ) but he got some nice explanations there..forgot what's the name, but u can always "google" it. here it is..http://www.bettas-jimsonnier.com/genetics.htm

The suggested sites are great. I don't think there's a single article that covers all the colors or color mixes. You'd have to read them each. Most will only cover basic colors and its dominance/recessiveness.
