There is nothing wrong with breeding veiltails persay if it's something you want to do, but keep in mind unless they are top notch or unusual most people will not pay more than about 5 dollars for one after all you can buy them anywhere else for that and I seriously doubt people will buy one then pay 35 dollars for shipping for one, which limits your buyers to being local, I am starting to see veiltails with nice colars as well as spadetails, which is nice to see they had disappeared for a time and dragon scales and other newer traits from other types of bettas

The spadetails I've seen were just young vts who eventually grew out to vt, but if you could get a stable spade strain that would be cool. Also try not to do reds and blues since they are everywhere, go for dragons and metallic and read up on standards if you want to make nice ones that people will want to buy

I was just planning to sell the Veiltails starting at 4.00 for males and 2.00 for females... It depends on the other breeds...

Spades are very rare and if someone comes across one, good luck getting them to sell it. I have yet to run into a true spade tail.

You could try and selectively breed a strain from vts if you have the patience. It would be a fun project to try but will take many generations

Don't have fb, sorry. Personally I would not breed vts (but I have thought about starting a fancy vt line with full fins). If you are looking for money, definatly do not breed vts. Try a pkxvt cross for spades?
