Crowntail Plakat?

I want to breed my EE Plakat male with my Crowntail Female in hopes that I get CTPK fry. Would this work?

Can you get a flaring pic? He looks to be a rosť tail which is very bad for breeding purposes.

You wont get ctpk in f1. It takes generations and generations of very strict selection. culling and inbreeding to get ctpk.

+1 to matt about the rt. It could also be that he just has naturaly raggy edges

He doesnt look rt, just raggy edges. The raggy edges might help increase the females ct influence too

What do you mean by "would this work" - you can cross breed any form. What is your goal? I am assuming you want to create CTPKEE. EE is recessive and would take you a few generations to achieve. But getting them to be CT should be easier because the male has pointy outer fins

Here's a link to a punnet square probability: (third page - post #24)
Form Breeding - Page 3

Color wise you might get some cambodian, some clean but most with irids. Maybe cellophane, grizzle, turquoise/steel blue (probably multi). I doubt you will get any reds, but it is possible if the female was from a red line, but multi - with irids on it. If lucky, you might even get white but also multi (not clean white).

My goal is to get CTPK's first time around. CTPK EE's would be great too. How many generations do you think it would take to get to my goal and what kind of fry do you think I'll get the first time around? CT's or PK's?
