You just can't breed DT to DT because you'll get some xfactor/deformed fish from it. As long as you can tell the parents of a fish and such it should be easy.
breedng a DTgeno(non-DT fish who had a DT parent) to a DT geno you should see some dt fry.
Sounds like its more trouble then its worth. What happens if you breed a DT to a non DT? would any of the fry be DT??

I hate genetics.

Actually, it is possible to breed DT to DT, especially if they are not from the same parents/background and have no spinal deformities. It is really important to watch for deformities, but it can be done for a generation or two with proper culling if any issues do appear. A few might be DT depending on what the other fin type was, a more dominant trait fin type might overwhelm the double tail gene, but if you breed your F1 spawn back to the DT you would get some DT babies.
