I am most definitely not breeding anytime soon, but I was wondering what would happen if I were to cross a Veiltail Double Tail and a HMPK? I'm guessing there would be a mess of fins and deformities?

You'd get VTs with nice dorsals and strong rays. =) A good tailtype cross if you want to start breeding good veiltails.

All long finned mutts varying from vt to delta. If vt was carrying pk then youd get some messy pks aswell

DTVT x HMPK

long fins are said to be dominant. So theoretically you should mainly have long fins, in between fins and some short fin. All with or without varying DT markings - such as longer dorsal, uneven DT caudal lobes, ect. You won't have any HM though. Best you can get is delta.

Nice finned vts. If I were to do that, I would cull most f1 pre hatch to keep low numbers, and in f2 you would get an amazing mix of things.
