Well first we have to look at the genes of both tail types.

Veil tail, is a dominant gene meaning if you cross it to lets say a halfmoon all the fry would come out to be veil tail (but may carry the halfmoon gene, key word:maybe).

Crowtail, is also a dominant gene just like above your gonna get all crowntail fry.

So to rephrase the question: What would crossing two dominant genes look like, and effect the gene pool?

No I think it would be an interesting combonation and think you should try it. I'm just trying to figure out what mixing two dominant genes will do. Well spawn them and lets find out ;P

Well I'd get to it! Your last spawn wanted to kill each other (but didn't, thank god) so you have an empty spawning tank just saying "spawn, spawn, spawn!!!" ;P
