i've seen people breed DTXDT and still have some good looking juvies. there will be a lot of culling involved but the results are amazing especially the split is down to the tail meat/puduncle that's difficult to achieve with nice split .. kniowing you're attempting CT DT i would say even if you have best genetics with CT alone achieving straight rays is a challenge so keep those water changes up!

CTDT is not favored. People don't seem to like them, specially if they end up with thin wavy rays . . . not in my area anyway.

Form breeding - specifically CT x DT by KadenJames. I also posted a theoretical punnet square equation.

I would always double check my area :) currently, crowntail is in first, while halfmoon and dumbo tied for second. Doubletail and combtail third while veiltail and plakat were fourth. ;) I didn't add any other varieties in there, like the strange split tail (veiltail ones), double crown or HMPKDT or anything more hard!! Lol

I know it says DT is recessive but I do have a fry who is DT from a DTgeno x HM cross. Odd!

Betta genetic is never "definite". We can only determine possibilities. This is why I often say "theoretically" - and you will also notice that you never get the percentage portrayed in the theory.

Take cambodian for example. It is said that cambodian is recessive. But to my experience it is very dominant in the sense that I will always have their pattern but not clean cambodian colors - rather a cambodian and other color combination.

Nevertheless knowing/understanding the theory will help us choose which to pair.
Good luck on your quest. Don't forget to keep us informed on your development - the steps you made. And once you've succeed, I wish to stick it to the "Form Breeding" thread so others may learn with an actual example, not just mere theory (if you don't mind, of course).
