To create CTPK, you'll definitely be doing a lot of culling. First you'd have to be very careful when selecting your breeders.

It also all depends on their firm and finnage. Remember the standards for each tail type is a bit different from others. With such a tail type from a CT to a PK, you have some messy fins in the beginning.

I'll be using the standard betta genetics terminology for each allele, I didn't use them in the stickied ones, but now that I have a little booklet with ALL of the representations, it'll be a piece of cake. For example, "BlBl" for turquoise, "blbl" for steel blue, and "Blbl" for royal blue. Makes things much easier to understand.

Unfortunately some evidence suggests that bettas do not conform to typical genetics. Many previously thought dominant or recessive genes are in fact semi dominant.
