Smile Should I get a CT, VT or HM male..?

So I'm Buying a male to breed to my Plakat females, so my possible choice on males are crowntail veiltail or halfmoon, witch means my possible fry would be CTPK VTPK or HMPK I really like CTPK a lot, and HMPK comes to a close second. But, what do you guys suggest?
And yes I've done up a lot of research bout breeding and I'm ready! in about 2-3 weeks I will be breeding my fishies :)

You should get a placet male, a crown tail and veil tail will ruin the quality of your fry's fins.

What your female is, get a plaket male to go with her or a HMPK, then you will get better offspring, with a veiltail you will likely just get VT offspring and with a crowntail you will just get PK with ratty looking ripped up tails.

Oh okay! *facepalm* I'll go with a halfmoon because they have no Plakat Male's, Little odd when they sell Plakt females but not the males :/

Why don't you just wait until they get one in? Petco has them all the time. I mean it's always better to get good fish the first time around rather than mystery fish that will be hard to find homes for. Have you considered homes for your fry already or how you will get homes for them? That's also a big thing to consider before breeding.

Petland isn't known for healthy fish, I wouldn't go there, they are also BIG culprits to supporting puppy mills and animal abuse. People have gotten puppies from petland that die days later from parvo. BAD place.
