Curious about tail shape



When I first got him, I THOUGHT he must have fin rot to have such a jaggedy tail. I've had him for a little while now though and it HAS gotten slightly more full, but still generally shaggy on the ends.

I notice his anal fin shows some characteristics of a crown tail so I'm wondering if it could just be from breeding a crown tail with a delta tail. Also, his body is shorter and stubbier than all my other little guys!

I think you may be right! he looks great! i wish i could find a green fish like that!

I was wondering about what would happen some1 were to breed a crown tail with a double tail. I have a cambodian crown tail female, and i would love to one day breed her with my double black/grey/red double tail male, i bet the babys would come out inedible.

Whoa, he does look like a Delta/Crown cross! Wicked! xD

Ahh, the wonders of genetics....this only makes me wonder more what would happen if I crossed my Combtail, Phoenix, with my moms Doubletail, Max....

He looks like he is similar to a Half Sun, which is where you breed a HM to CT. Very beautiful!!!

AlexXx: If you bred a CT to DT, you would eventually get a DTCT. But, with DT, you have to breed a few generations for the DT to show. The first spawn would just show the DT gene.

He could have damaged it in the past and it is regrowing. In any event, he is very beautiful!

I was just looking on aquabid today and I saw a double tail crown tail...so neat!

Thank you! He's quite enjoyable to watch as I'm fairly sure he knows how awesome he is... haha

I'll keep an eye on him and see if the shape changes any. I'm fairly sure it will remain jaggedy. I've never heard of a half sun but it sounds VERY interesting!! I was just reading about rosetails and feathertails, also. seems like the combinations could be endless!!
