Ok :) I think maybe this is a challenge for when I am a LOT more experienced in breeding betta's, I wouldn't do it right away, simply because I still have a lot to learn and I don't want to be the person that breeds for fun with no regard to the loss of life. Thanks guys for all your responses!

When they are right, they are really beautiful. It would be a worthy project for someone with less hard water than I have since hard water curls CT fins.

Combtails are usually pretty messy. I am crossing halfmoon and crowntail to work toward crowntails with the halfmoon spread. My best first gen male looks to be a pretty good delta, who I will either pair with a halfmoon female and then cross the offspring, or cross him to one of my better hmxct females. It's kinda a time will tell thing, but with his spread, a halfmoon will likely be better, then cross the offspring to reset the crown tips.

It's going to be a good long while before I get something that really shows what I am working toward. In the meantime, combs galore! Luckily, I can put some into my sorority.
