You also want High Quality, right? Do you know about the Ray Fins?
A good quality Betta has some Nice, Even, Rays. I have NO clue of what Branching is. -_-

#1 - she has a good dorsal. They all have the same caudal.

@LebronThe Betta: From the end of the body, they grow rays (primary). These rays branch into secondary rays which then branch again. When talking about branching, people mean the last branch. Most common in HM is a 4 and 8 ray branching - meaning one primary ray eventually branches into 4 or 8 rays. VT and CT may only have 2 ray branching - meaning one primary only branches into 2 end rays...... I hope that's not confusing.

That is kinda confusing. Is this Important while breeding? I don't want to Breed Halfmoons, or Deltas. I would like to breed Crowntails. But I'm not getting into the Sweat and Blood, yet. Just Researching. :) Just have a Hard Time with Genetics, and Branching. ;)

A preferred CT form is similar to a HM's. Knowing their rays helps us create the type of CT (single. double, crossed ray etc.) What kind of pairing to breed etc. So yes it is important to understand branching if you intend to breed for form (this applies for all fin types).
