DT gene?

Are there any clues that a betta carries DT when it isn't expressed?

I would say no. You could only tell if the fish has DT or any other tail type in it (without it displaying it) if the breeder of the fish has and keeps past spawn logs and could tell you if the fish has the Tail type gene.

Usually, the dorsal fin will be wider (horizontal width) and starts closer to the head with more rays- nearly as wide and long as the anal fin with the DT...but not always......records are the best method.....some breeders like to use the DT to get the wider dorsal without the double lobes in the tail.......
