It depends on your genetics. If you have a sibling pair or a pair whose genetic histories are similar... like if they are both single tail but came from a doubletail spawn, then you'll probably have some doubletails. If you have two complete and utter singletails without any doubletail in their recent family tree, then you probably won't have any at all. If you breed st to dbt, then you'll have a mix.

Doubletail genetics are complex. It is considered recessive, which means both fish need to carry the geno for dt to appear in a spawn.

Yes. There used to be a lot in my area.

Theoretically you can produce them by selectively crossing DT to CT. I'm not sure how many generations though.
