You'll get 100% HMs or deltas with about 50-75% carrying the DT gene. Breeding brother to sister will result in about 25% DTs.

Depends on the genetics of the fish. A DT with only 2 ray splits will throw VT when mixed with an HM. Always go by ray splits first to determine if your DT comes from VT lines or HM/Delta lines.

A DT (with more than 2 branches) mixed with an HM that carries DT (which may not always be expressed in the dorsal) will give you some DT in the original spawn.

A DT crossed with an HM that does not carry DT (getting harder and harder to find these days) will give you the mix Mr. V posted.

A "Y" a VT will have a ray that only branches into two. An SD or HM will have more than 2 splits

I think what 1f2f meant by "Y" shape is not the shape of the splitting lobes but the branching of rays like vilmarisv has shown.

Yeah that's what I meant sorry if that wasn't clear.

Like Vils picture each ray on the fishes caudal fin branch out. VT rays only split once. Creating the Y shape but other tail types split several times like in the picture.
