@ darkmoon17- I had my eye on that guy. He's awesome. Have no use for HMDT's though . I think it's "smilebetta".

Yes, you can choose a female with a 4 ray caudal fin to reduce the ray branching in the offspring. I'd go 2 ray only if it was from one of my Deltasuns or Traditional Plakat females, otherwise a 2 ray female would probably be Veiltail and I went through a couple years of breeding to those to get decent Halfmoon females that I have now.

I am just thinking that if people are going to breed them anyway and others continue to ask for them then it might be beneficial to this type as a whole to be bred healthy by a good breeder so the good stock can get into the lines and the Feathertails can evolve and become breedable.

Well, the thing is, "fealther tails" and "rosetails" are the issue...If they were healthy, they would be halfmoons, etc. You know? The fact that theyre labeled such is in their issue- they're only labeled that with their deformities.

When theyre not over-bred and whatnot, feather/rosetails arent bad- but the more theyre bred down, they get...funky. Issues, deformities, all that.

And lol, tokala, out of no where after a long time-- FISH! BUYING IT! Haha <3

He's gorgeous Tokala!

I love this guy, but towards the ends of his caudal, it looks like something's weird with his fin.

He has some very nice finnage and the color is really interesting. It's like someone took three or four of my best Bettas and put all the best parts and colors together.
