Generally, I prefer to keep tail types in my breeding pairs the same unless I am trying to improve something in the line.

Like using Delta Tail to reduce rays in the next generation.

Or using Double Tail to improve dorsals.

I personally wouldn't mix a CT with anything other than a CT. The first several generations will look pretty messy.

It is entirely up to you though. If you can rehome and take good care of all the fry, you can pretty much do what you want in terms of picking a pair.

I suggest using HM or DTHM female. Although you will end up with messy fins in the first few generations, yet you can improve the general form of your CT. Make sure you get a good, balanced HM/DTHM.

But if you can get another CT, I suggest not crossing tail types.

Just a silly question from a novice. WHAT do you do with all the babies??? I feel so responsible for each of my 26 betas in 26 aquariums I might add, omg somebody stop me. I just can't imagine what you do with all them.

find a lfs to give them to. do not just use any lfs however! use one that you trust. NEVER walmart!!! if you know of a family owned one, they're usually good choices.

I would go with a hm because if you can't find a crowntail female finding a hmdt would be difficult. Do not breed a vt because the betta will look like it has ragged fins all the time. Your choice in the end.

I don't think keeping them is going to be much of a reality. Some betta can spawn up to 300+ eggs and some batches can have 60-100 betta survive. Even if you kept them all you would have to keep them all in small jars yourself just to provide more room for more babies...that is unless you kill most of the babies off yourself to only the best which most breeders do. It's called culling where they kill the ones that are not to their standards so they have less fish to worry about and can focus more on improving the lines.
