Nope, they will look like this, maybe with a wider caudal spread. These fry are CT x VT... The ones you pictured are not first generation combtail. Is your crowntail male a HM CT? If not, you will most likely get SDs with some spiking.

You will probably get a mix of bettas with HM and SD caudal spreads but their spikes will look like the ones I pictures most likely. You might get a few random ones with nicer rays but it takes a few generations to get nice combtail/halfsuns like the ones you pictured. You might get some that look like the last one you pictured though since that is just a crowntail with slightly shorter rays.

so the male is still mouthing at the nest and picking up the falling eggs. I counted at least 30. when will they hatch if they embraced yesterday. I heard 48 hours I just want to make sure everything is perfect. This is my first spawn where the dad didnt eat the eggs. so excited!!!

I still stand...CT to any other tail types is gonna produce messy fins. You will NOT get fins like that. It takes generations to get a fish like those you posted.
