quick question

so i want to try breeding some CTPK, but finding a female CTPK is really hard.

so if i decided to do a male CTPK x female HMPK would the results be 50/50? or would one dominate the other?

or what if i did male CTPK x female CT? i would think it would be 25% CTPK, 25% CT and 50 % ct with medium size fins, is this true or again, would one dominate the other genetically?

Ask the breeder of the male for a sibling female?

Crossing ctxpk to hmpk will give you short tails with a bit of web reduction. Ctxpk to ct will give you 100% long finned ct, in theory.

For theoretical CT cross breeding equation look at post #8;
Form Breeding

If you decide to cross, I suggest using a HM female (HM or HMPK) - hoping to get wider caudal spread. Either way, you will get messy fins in F1 and need to work yourself to F3-4.
