How do you breed delta?

How do you breed deltas?

I'm planning on breeding my White/partially yellow halfmoon (male) with my turquoise veil tail (female)

I was doing research and someone said Deltas could pop out of the mix possibly.

Is that true?...(I know majority could be veil tail because that's dominant)

Also if I was to breed the offsprings with a halfmoon or PLAKAT what would I get? (tail wise not color)

(I know not everything will be exact but just possible offsprings).

HM x VT may produce DeT. But the type with rather round tails.
HM x HM does not = 100% HM. You will get some DeT

Long fins are dominant over short. So you should get mostly (if not all) long fins

No. You are breeding a well branched to a not well branched.. and the VT's have that droop. Deltas are out of HM stock that because of genetics dont get the branching or because of care don't reach full potential.

Crossing tail types every generation will just get you a mess .. each tail type is very different in branching as well as webbing and shape.
