Doubletail Crowntail?

Okay, been doing a bit of reading and came across the fact that breeding a DT to a DT is not the best idea. I have a DTgeno and a DT... Which I believe aught to give doubletails without a lot of deformities. I know I can breed him (DT) to a single tail to get genos, which can be used in further breeding, if I so decide to use his genetics.

My question is, since in my area double crowns are non-existent, more then rare, how would I achieve a decent looking CtxDT, and a better question is... How far down the line? F1, F2, etc?

Thanks!

I've been wondering the same thing!! Subscribed!!
Kind of too late for me to change anything though since my DT male and CT female just spawned a few hours ago.

Good luck! I would like to work on it, I know it would need a lot of time, dedication, and probably a good bit of culling. I do have a crowntail, but her fins are messy.

Janey is the DT geno, and her genes are obviously as stubborn as she is! There is a fry that is chilling in tank #2 that is a doubletail! Who knows how many more I have.

I love the first ones coloration! Her fins are sooo long!!
These are my parents

Not the best quality, but I needed a test spawn so here it goes.

Thank you!

And my next spawn is actually going to be a CTPK attempt, but it won't be for a while yet--no room

Aemaki that male is absolutely gorgeous!! I have never seen anything like him before. I'm really interested in seeing how the spawn turn out.

Sena I LOVE your females coloring. So unique!
