Breeding Question

I am not planning on breeding for a while if at all but I had some questions. If both parents are red/veil tale will all the spawn be red/ veil tale? Are tails and colors decided by genetics or chance?

Form and color are determined by genetics. So Red VTx Red VT = 100% Red VT unless they have a multiple genetic back ground.

If the parents (of your current two fish) were of different colors, it might show up in the spawn. But more than likely, you'll have all Veil-tales.
