Question Thickening up the Dorsal

How would you go about thickening up the dorsal, making it wider and fuller? I understand you do this with selective breeding but would that involve you to bring in a DT to make the dorsal fuller/wider? I have a halfmoon male hes prefect other then his dorsal being kinda thin, I would like breed him for show but I need to improve the dorsal.

Yes using a DT will work wonders or using a female with a very broad dorsal could help also

It takes just one generation to get broad dorsals so one broad dorsal or dt parent will give broad dorsal fry.
If you use a dt all fry will have broad dorsals and if you use a dt carrier only some will

DT to make fins wider. PK with thick fins/rays to thicken HM rays.

People cross breed back and forth to get wide fins with big rays - until they're satisfied.
