Long finned (duh), but may or may not have fringes, it wouldn't be considered a half-sun, since it will only spread so far, sorry but this is hard to figure out. Maybe youll have a fan tail carrying the crowntail gene :)

Some may be crowntail and some may be fantail. I guess you won't know until they grow their full finnage.

Ok, if you cross a DT (double tail) to a halfmoon, only 25% of the fry will show DT, but the other 75% will have the DT gene, so if you breed a brother and sister, who are STs form a double tail spawn, youll get a good spwn of DTs.

Get it?

Ohhhhhh!!! I get it....(after reading it for the fifth time)
So I wont know till they grow.
By breeding a brother and a sister, does it cause deformation or other problems??

I think it's punnet square time, haha. Ahh, biology memories.
By breeding siblings you do have a slightly higher risk of recessive deformities showing up, but it's not to big of a problem for the first generation.

brother sister pairs are fine, how do you think we get our bettas to look so good?

It's a punnet square, but I hate math so I just wait and see :P
