Technical question

I was wondering if anyone had knowledge of a dominate and recessive Gene chart for betta coloring...

Does such a thing exist for bettas ?

IMO there are no definite outcomes because they've been genetically mixed too much. You need to know their back ground to predict more reliable outcomes. Even the punnet squares aren't reliable if you're breeding random pairs.

@indjo

That was my thought I just was curious if there was any predicted out comes from gene pools

I suppose a small amount of inbreeding / culling could cause certain color genes to be more predominate...

Use info on color as your basic knowledge to calculate probability - mainly when working with basic colors like red, green, metallic, etc. But dragons, so far is confusing - it's made up of various genetic set ups. I have yet to conclude probable outcome patterns.

My goal was to not aim towards specific patterns. But more towards maintaining a Color... As alot of colors are a Recessive Gene...

To maintain basic colors is relatively easy. By basic I mean black lace, green, blue, cherry red, etc. Colors difficult to maintain are the ones that has NR genes in them like extended red, orange, yellow. The easier ones are white opaque and white platinum, and cambodian.

Say, for example you want to maintain extended red. DO NOT use anything with irid. It would be best to combine to a cambodian like color but without any irid (red-flesh body with solid red fins). You may even come up with orange ....

note: TBH I have never worked with red. This is based on what I see in friend's breeding.
