Genetics

Does anyone know of a website that would show what you would get if you crossed (so & so) with (such & such)..sorry lol I couldn't think of another way to say it.I googled it but haven't found anything.I guess a better way would be if your crossed a blue with a yellow what would the babies be or if you crossed a veiltail with a crowntail.Im not a breeder as I do not now nearly enough about the subject.Just a lover of bettas and curious

Blue and yellow would most likely give you blue fish with heaps of red wash.
Crowntail x veiltail= VT, low quality deltas, the webbing reduction can vary from no reduction to combtail. No CT in this generation though.

Thanks :) but that was just an example.Im just really into genetics with bettas as my sister used to be a breeder and I might want to get into it later so I am looking for a website that would show me what I would get if I crossed certain colors and such

I think there is no one site nor forum that concludes genetic mixes. You would have to read the basic colors, understand which is likely to be more dominant (theories aren't always true), etc, etc. It's too complicated, partly (if not mainly) because bettas have been crossed bred too often thus there is practically no such thing as "basic" genetic. The best way to calculate outcome is to know the genetic background of your breeders - preferably 3 previous generations.

I suggest you read all you can find on genetics, like I've been doing, and do your best to make sense out of all those gibberish . You can also checkout spawn logs to see results from mixes.

Once you've read the basics, I'll be more than happy to discuss it with you ............ I'm sure others will too.

Here are some you can start on:

www.bettysplendens.com
www.bettas-jimsonnier.com
www.bettatalk.com
www.bettaterritory.nl
http://www.bettasonli.com/article2.htmlhttp://bettacare101.com/genetics/

Happy reading
