Good pairs are going to mean different things to different people. Do you just want to creat some pretty colored fish or do you want to breed to the IBC standard. I have seen some beautiful fish but they are not acceptable colors in the IBC so to me they are not good breeders. My objective makes me reject fish many others would die to breed. What is your reason to breed then we can offer better advice??

This is a pair I have in right now..

I wouldn't breed your VT unless you know people that could take 100+ bettas. You wont be able to sell VT for anything so you will end up giveing them away and that might even be hard.

I am not a huge fan of breeding Veil tails either unless you are going to keep the spawn small, and keeping them for yourself, and giving some to a few friends, having a large spawn of veiltails will just be harder on you, because you will spend lots of money on them, and will end up giving some away, and then some you will not be able to get rid of, maybe if you wanted some just pull mama out after 50 or so eggs have been laid, or less.

You should really separate your male from the two females he his housed with and do a lot more research before you even think about breeding anything.
