It's ok, I was only trying to highlight the slim chances needed to get any
of the desirable traits, obviously this was best case scenario and in reality it will take a hell of a lot of breeding and a good number of generations and outcrossing, and a good deal more time, but I didn't want to put them off because its good to be curious!
I only said there "could" be half moons, and that "these would need further breeding to get the perfect half moon." Believe me you are right it wont be easy, but on the other hand... every variety we have today came from somewhere!
I know many factors contribute to the perfect half moon, but it seems it is only the one dominant gene that contributes to veil tails, so in theory once this is removed in the next generation the half moon trait will not be so severely deconstructed, especially if the father is bred with a daughter. The only reason I have looked into this so much is because it is quite hard around here to get a female half moon of good quality, breeders don't want people to recreate their lines so easy.
Annaimee, MattsBettas sums it up nicely, the genes will be there but what comes out of the mix can be surprising! I think it is safe to say you will never truly know until you try!
