Exclamation Cross breeding and genetics.

Im new for betta and ive been searching and i did not found the correct answer. The genetics i did not found them all so wish someone can tell me all the details on collours and tail type. And another this is i read that dont cross breed HM to VIEL TAIL. so i would like someone to tell me whats the best to do or maybe is best if they are halfmoon breed them to only half moon, and crown tail to only crowntail. and reds to reds, and black to black and blue to blue? Sorry if i didnot explain it good please some one answer me?

Here's a good guide to colors, though I can't guarantee that it's 100% true:

And yes, it's generally best to stick to the same tail type to avoid messy fins.

Thanks for a quick replay. The chart i alredy saw it but i could not under stand it. But if i use same suit on tails does the fins improve and is use same suit on colors does the color improve?

It depends. As you can see, colors are pretty complicated.

No, if you provide a specific breeding pair example we can guess what the outcome would be. It's just really hard to describe every possibility. And with recessive genes, some things are impossible to know without info on the fish's lineage.

CT should always be bred with CT unless you want to deal with 2 or 3 generations of in-between fins (combtails). I did a cross with a halfmoon plakat and a crowntail, but only because I'm trying to produce crowntail plakats. If you want to improve the fins of a crowntail, cross it with a better crowntail.
