Depends. If you want a specific tail type they have to be the same type parents. If you don't care about looks, breed anything.

What will you do with the babies? Did you know they can have 200 or more babies?

Yes, you can, but with some tail types it will bring down the value of the betta because it is not purebreed and may have a different appearence. For example, like Lebronthebetta said, it can make crowntails rays messy.

Your guys are VTs. (Veiltails) They're the least desired since they're massively over bred. What colors do you want exactly?

Also this is very important for me to breed him. Do you think my red betta is ready to breed? (age wise)

Definatly two veil tail boys. Buy a female and do lots of research if you want to breed them, and never put males together. Also, please reconsider breeding veil tails. We have enough of them already.

And if you bought these from a pet store, start conditioning them Immediately because they might already be to old.

Honestly, you are going to have practically no market for any resulting fry out of a cross with either of these males. Blue and red VTs are about the most common type of betta available and so their price usually reflects this.

As to keeping them all peacefully in a 100 gallon tank, you are more than likely only going to be able to do that with the females. Also to really get the best finnage it's advised to jar out the males. Once they have been jarred however, you are going to have a lot of difficulty re-introducing them to your main tank.

Are they the permanent homes of your bettas? If so you are going to need a heater unless you are keeping your room at a toasty 80-82 farenheit 24 hours a day.

Judging by the questions you have been asking I would say you need to do a ton more research before even attempting to spawn your bettas. Fry need to be fed live food several times a day, so you need to purchase live food cultures in advance and get the hang of hatching BBS on a daily basis. It's not just as simple as putting two bettas into a tank together and having them spawn. One or both fish can be seriously injured or killed if your fish are not conditioned correctly or you being inexperienced, misjudge when they are ready and release your female too early.

Don't want to sound like a Debbie Downer, but please do some research. If you can't tell that these bettas are both male you definitely shouldn't be thinking of trying to spawn them right now.

And make sure you do lots of research before breeding! I am contemplating breeding one of my males (not show quality, just for fun)...but it is a lot of research and preparation! Definitely not as easy as breeding something like guppies!

When did you get your boys?
