like what colours are domaent and what tail forms are dominant.
probabley id like for such a detailed document to also inclued discriptions of good ecamples of each strain
like as an example what makes a good extended red twin tailed half moon and so on
dose such a document even exist?

There is information about genetics.. detailed yet general. Most "strains" as you call them have different meanings about color combinations and many breeders or sellers really don't know 'cause they are buying them at market or won't tell to protect their color.

but im looking for a more detailed, text/biology type of book thing
somethin that tells or gives examples of all possible crosses of one strain type, say crown over all other strains (what the offspring will be like)
eg CT x HM = % deltas % super deltas % crown geno ect.
thanks again that site is some help.

You are probably looking for something that doesn't exist... its not in a book. The knowledge comes from an understanding of basic genetics, reading what is available, and spawning.. and seeing the outcome.
Betta genetics with what they are doing today is not A + B = C. Its not cut and dry high school genetics.
The only person that might have something in book form about bettas is at the Betty splendens site. She wrote a book and its about $30
If you understand... HM and SuperDelta are phenotype.. not genotype. And the overuse of HM is a joke when you look at the fish on AB.. especially the females.
