HELP! good combo- HMPK x CT, HMPK x VT, HMPK x HM?

sorry for so many threads LOL

Alright so this is my first time breeding and I know I am getting a HMPK male, but not sure I want to breed sibling, would any other tail types work well? thanks!

I'd personally breed HMPK to HM...Should give you a variety of HM's, HMPK, and some that are in between HMPK and HM.

I agree. I would only breed the HMPK to a HM. In addition to having stronger finnage, you'd have an easier time finding homes for HM or HMPK offspring than any other resulting mix.

Yup, the worst thing you could do is crossing HMPK x VT. It breaks your genes so bad that its really really hard to get it back.

yeah, I didn't think VT would be good, but I am totally inexperienced so I though hey it's possible they'd turn out pretty. I'll see if the seller of the male has any HM females, as I pretty much would have to get combined shiping to be able to afford two bettas ;)

I also like the idea of HMPK/HM! As impressive as super long finned HMs are, the slightly shorter tailed ones seem less likely to tail bite, which is a plus to me. The sound of an in between of the lack of tail biting in HMPKs and the flowier fins of the HM sounds like a lovely thing. Plus you also get HMPKs and HMs in the mix! :)
