Looking for genetic expert.

Hi,
I am new to the forum. I bred Angelfish for a long time but I have moved a lot the past year and had to take down my tanks.

In my free time I am working on a software program to help fish breeders. I have a few questions for everyone here in general and will be posting those later. Right now Im looking for someone who has a good understanding of the genetics of bettas. I have a few questions and would like to know who I should talk to.

Thanks!

Well, I can help you a little but not much. Double tails are genetic mutations. Orange and yellow I think are too.
I have to get off soon anyway.

Frogi.. every aspect of domesticated bettas is from one form of genetic mutation or another.

Anyways @OP.. there are a few users here who are somewhat familiar with genetics in bettas but not to the extent you're looking for I believe. Most of us (myself, Indjo, Oldfishlady, Mr. Vampire and a few others) have a pretty decent grip on the easier to define aspects of betta genetics.

Your best bet for finding high quality well informed information on Betta genetics is to join the IBC and get in contact with people such as Gene Lucas and Leo Buss who quite literally wrote the book on betta genetics (what parts have been identified at least).
