Out of curiosity, do you know the genetic back ground of your breeders .... do you know if they have rose tail back ground? They are 2 ray - unlikely to be rose, I know. But they show signs of rose effect..... or other deformity.

Sorry, but your fry's fins don't look right. They look sort of incomplete - For example, pictures 3 - 6 looks as if part/s of fins are incomplete/missing. They are not growing equally.
Be extra careful if you plan to continue their line. Make sure they don't carry genetic flaws.

Thank you for noticing. I appreciate it. I was having the same thought as well. Male breeder is HM Rosetal x Plakat. That's probably where the rosetail genes came from. Or it could be deformity? I don't know.Probably. I'm not sure about the female, though. I'll be careful on their line. I'm very picky when it comes to selecting my breeders.
Can you tell me what you meant by incomplete? I think they look just fine.

The dorsal fin looks kind of funny, also the anal is rather short. Kind of funny actually, because most breeders have problems with anals too long.

Hehe. It is kind of funny. I'm no expert but the Dumbo gene probably works like the Double tail gene and causes their offspring to carry deformities.
Even if they're deformed, I still think they're pretty.
I love them deformed or not.

look at the top part of betta#2 caudal and the bottom part of betta #3 caudal. Caudal end should curve evenly from top to bottom (what ever fin form).

The anal and dorsal are quite small, but iMO that isn't necessarily caused by deformed genes. IME Worms (food) and dirty tank floor may sometimes be the cause.
