I think if you want to breed them you have to have a lot of preperation for it. As for your pair I am not going to tell you not to breed pet store fish because that's what I did the first time I bred but I am going to tell you should breed your male to another crowntail female not a veiltail. Also make sure you have to time and money and room for the fry. Make sure of what you are going to do with them when there grown up to.:)

you'll get veils with ratty-looking fins. i, personally, wouldn't it'd be better to find a crowntail female, so you can get pure CTs.

breeding such common bettas might be hard, too. gotta find home for anywhere from one, to 100+ babies. think you can do it? and feed them all? keep all their jars clean and warm?

I actually know plenty of people that want 1-10 bettas.

If you have the time, money, and even more time and money for this spawn then yes. The fins of the spawn will look all shaggy... The CT also looks to have a hunchback but not sure on that one... Finding homes for +100 babies is going to be tough, especially for CT mixes. You should never breed CTs with other tail types as said, the fins will look ragged. You should only make a mix unless you're a professional breeder and I assume you're not yet. It is better to have proper breeding stock and not from stores as you do not know they're genetics which can interfere with the desired colors traced from the parents.

Yes, but are you sure?? You might even get over 200, nearly 500 if you're lucky. You do know you have to cull, right? Breeding is no easy task.

OK. :) If you want ragged fin fries go for it. Why do you want to breed exactly? I mean, this is very difficult to understand... Most new breeders want show quality fish.

What do you mean by ragged? And I don't know. I wanted to go for more of a unique kind of Betta.

Since he's a CT, the fins of the fry will look a mess since their mother is a VT and their dad is a CT. Mixing the 2 will cause deformed fins and fry. To perfect the CTVT type, you must go through a lot of lines to get even rays and deforms.
