None are going to produce a show type betta that breeders with that goal in mind will buy. You may be able to get a local shop interested so breed for that goal.

I would not mix tail types and just breed for nice colors. No HM x PK or CT x HM. Just makes a mess of the offspring when you go to sell. Either chose to breed nice solids, or attractive multi colors. And breed healthy fish with vibrant colors.

I have one more guy I would like everyone's opinion on. Took me awhile to get a picture of Hades. I got him from another member on here. He's a CTPK with giant geno.

I wouldn't breed him because his traits are undesirable. Unless you breed him to the pk female to shorten his fins to get a true ct pk. He is practically a combtail with 2 rays.

A ctpk should have shorter fins like a regular pk. Like so.

Thank you mahsfish, I was wondering what was undesirable about him. Other than the length of his caudal he looks good though? I could certainly breed him with a traditional PK if that's the case. I even have a king PK girl already. I'll probably try to find one I like better and work with Ra first, but if Hades looks good I'd like to work with a giant line too.

Is he flaring in the first pic? I would recommend picking one with a 180 spread, unlike this boy. I love CTPK, but I would go with one with a 180. My favorite is Pan. Good luck!
