Need some info on genetics

For example what types of aspects are dominant and which are recessive? Are there certain types that are going to take over if put in the mix? (I've head veiltails can eliminate many tail types)

Here's some reason on gene behavior. http://watershed3.tripod.com/types.html#allele

Here are some additional sites you can check out that discusses genetics.
www.bettatalk.com
www.bettas-jimsonnier.com
www.bettaterritory.nl
www.bettysplendens.com

They don't really discuss dominant-recessive traits. But as a general guide:
- Traditional or "wild" form is dominant over any modern traits.
- Less rays are dominant over multiple ray branching (eg. VT (less ray) is dominant over HM (multiple ray branching)
- Red is, IMO, partially dominant - I mean they will almost always show, though a mere smudge
- Irid dominant (similar to red)
- females are said to be dominant for form while males more for color (not always true)

Dominant/recessive traits also depends on stronger lines - eg. males from a true line are usually dominant over females from a mixed line. So, IMO, the breeding trend during certain periods will determine probable outcomes.

red and blue are dominant like the VT and female, males do take most color. there is another tail type called "halfsun" you have to breed other tail types to get it though, you breed HM to CT there would be some but not in perfect so you would have to bring down the bloodline until a couple of generations am no expert though

Long fin is dominant to short fin
single tail dominant to double
CT is partial dominent. It will cause "combing" no matter what fin type you breed to.
Red will add red to all/most of the fry
Vailtails will lower the ray count and such in anything it bred to. Thus VT to HM you will get VT's mostly with some deltas maybe.
Iridescence also is dominant, hard to breed out of a line.
Marble is partial dominant I suppose. If one parent is marble you'll get at least some fry that express the gene and the rest will carry it givig them a chance at producing marbled fry.
Dragon is partial. dragon + dragon = either no dragon on some dragon scaling but not full body.

orange/yellows will produce reds unless bred to another fish who shows/carries orange/yellow respectively.


Ummm, Don't know much on metalics...

It's usually never just one thing. You can breed a black HM to a black HM get blues,whites,blacks,deltas,superdeltas,PK's...It all depends on what other genetics are hidden in the pair.

also that's a good reason you could buy fish from AB because if you ask the breeder of the fish you bought they will show you

Aquabid is a great place to go, but one warning! You must be very strong because if you're not, you might just want to buy them all ;)
