O_O Please tell me that picture is fake...
Oh, and OP is not thinking about the hundreds of fry he'll have to deal with. Oh and: No one wants VTs any more. Go on Aquabid and and look at VTs and tell me how many are for sale when you get back.

Would you pay $15 per fish if someone charged for it plus the $38 shipping or so depending what transhipper you used? I like veiltails, too, but not enough to pay that much for them...they're not as highly sought after as the other tail types.

1. do not say someone else tried to do this and that to her when we all know it was you, i know you want a clean slate but dont lie to us of your self or you will get no where

2. Agression is partially hereditary and unless the people your selling to are just going to use them for food or fighters (which is both sick and wronge) this is not a trait they want and many avaiod extreamly agressive fish.

3. Veil as cute as they are are mostly appealing to new betta/ fish keepers who are looking for a little pet or live decoration and arent really intrested in the quality of fish nor paying more than the $5 you can get them for at a LFS

4. Im glad youve decided to take intrest this time in learning how to breed bettas and not just doing it blindly, but you should let her rest for atleased 1.5-2 monthes before considering even trying that again (which i wouldnt recomend) then if your going to breed her make sure you have the appropriate set up and a DIFFRENT male. Remember its not the fishes fault they didnt breed its yours, so dont go replacing her just because you want to breed right now. take your time and LEARN first.

5. If your breeding it should be to share the exceptional traits a fish has or to share and improve the quality of a line and never be just for the hell of it or to take money. Fish need care, love and dedication and if you cant/ wont give it to them dont keep or ever try to breed them

6. When/ If breeding always remember You cannot blame a fish for not breeding or being agressive, They have prefrences, personalitys and diffrent genetics so they wont always get along or lead to good spawn.

No one is saying VT's are bad, there are just so many VT's out there that there isnt a pure line, so they shouldnt be bred when tons rot in stores already. There are just too many unknown genes in a VT now.

*Edit: Thanks for the random picspam Abby. No one said they were ugly, just shouldnt be bred.
