Well one rule to doubletails....NEVER breed two double tails together.

Here's a basic guideline to breeding Double tails.

DT= Double Tail
ST= Single Tail

Generation 1:
DTxST= 50% DT genos. You'll get STs with possibly wider dorsals that carry the DT gene.

Generation 2:
ST carrier x ST carrier= 25% DTs 75% DT carriers

Generation 3:
DT x ST carrier= 50% DT 50% ST

The following generations will continue to be 50% DT and 50% ST.

Halfmoons and DTs are very good combonations...DT will increase the width of the dorsal which is something judges look at.

Here is what I know about genetics regarding DTs'
Never breed 2 of them to each other bettter just breeding one doubletail to a dt carrier

Dts' usaully have sort bodies that don't have that good aperance if you breed dt times a dt

I'd say go with MrVampires advice halfmoons are the hit right now and adding dt to the combination means these getting snatched up fast.
If you need any more genetic advice ring me a bell and PM me

This betta will take alot of work.
Bc you see it has the yellow fin-blue body (Mustard gas like colors). yet it also has black.

Youre taking the route of going for blue/black lace to start off, which is good.
But keep in mind that most blues and black bettas carry red in their genes and this is very hard to breed out.

And also keep in mind that red is dominant. and that red will take over yellow, bc yellow is just a mutation of red.
This means if you perfected your blue/black lace strain, and would like to now inject the yellow genes, itll take a few crossings to get the yellow to appear. your first spawn from that cross will most likely have no yellows.

the Butterfly trait is dominant so it should be no problem.
And the DT gene is not so hard. you just have to find one with that trait, and everyone else here's given you advice on that.

-Sounds like an adventure your gettin into. but thats the fun part. It may take a few years before you reach the above betta type if youre starting from scratch.
