Half moon x veil

Hey I was curious on what fry you would get from a hm x vt spawn. Would fry be all normal vt with a couple delta. Or would the fry be majority veil but with long and broad fins with a couple deltas? Reason I'm asking is I've got a red hm male and a veil female which are just sitting around doing nothing. I want to breed my other HM pair but they are young and need conditioning. I was thinking of breeding these 2 (hm x vt) to get some experience in before I breed the hm pair.

Also does anyone have pics of adult HMVT fry?

I don't want to hear that I will get stuck with lots of fry as I am aware of this. And I do have store and buyers that I know will take some. I'm just looking for results to see if I would get nice broad veils.

I did something similar but it was hm x traditional pk which is basically a short finned vt.
Got deltas, roundtails and one that could get to sd.
Another person I know did a hm x trad pk and got some nice transitional pk who could reach 180 but round edges.
Ill try and find a pic but just imagine vt with a few more rays and slightly better spread.

On my female vt she has 3 rays at then end of some branching. But fin damage at the top so I cannot see half portion of the fin.

This is her. The damage is from past breeding and it grew back oddly. But she has a huge beard and lost her opovistor. Is it possible she changed genders or just from being isolated for other bettas.

I would imagine either a VT with a halfmoon spread with long tails or a delta/super delta with longer fins then normal.

They cannot change genders. Hmxvt is not a great cross, because vt is dominant and will produce vts with slightly better finnage in f1.
