Breeding double tails together

I'm not sure if I should breed my new double tail together.

I heard that breeding doubletails together is bad. What do you guys think?

She said after the first generation I'll have to cross back to single tails. All I have are these two double tails...

You can do that.So, you breed the doulletails, then the next generation, you breed back to singletail?

Pretty much but I don't have a single tail that's compatible with them. I could use one of my red cambodian crowntails...

Alright so Im still trying to understandthis whole genetic but are you saying right now you breed the two doubletails that the fry will be double tails, but the the F2 generation you have to breed one doubletail with a singletail that carrys the DT gene if you want more DTs?

It's not to get more DTs (well we want more DTs) but it's to fix the genetic problems DTs have such as bent spines, stubby bodies, and the extra swim bladder problems.
