Grrr... That's called prejudice... I had a pair of betta (male & female) living together in the past. Got lots of fry from them too...

they will all be veiltail, its very dominant and takes several generations to get rid of

even experienced breeders end up with killed betta fish, please if you plan on breeding do your RESEARCH have all the appropriate supplies and dont try to rush into it.... im not saying this to be mean or anything but it takes alot of knowledge to breed bettas, its really complicated involves ALOT of money tons of time and hundreds of jars/tanks larger than 1/2 gallon to seperate the fry and the means to heat them (you could end up with over 300 bettas) and no where for them to go, you need to condition your fish for weeks before you can breed them and have the appropriat tanks and several different foods for both parents and fry. its very time consuming so dont just jump into it.

I have read that crowntails are very aggressive so you have to be careful with breeding them.

Thank you nav2008. And yeah, you have to be committed to your breeding project to get lots of little bettas.
