Unhappy orange betta

So I was at my lfs and saw a awesome orange veiltail. But they had it for 20 bucks and is pure orange except for 2 very small streaks of carolina blue on its fins. On sundays they have 25percent off all fish so I could get it for 15 bucks. If I were to breed it what color female would be best to try and keep the orange color.

Anyone? Also what about a yellow betta. And would it be worth it?

orange are supposed to be pretty rare, so i say, if you can afford him, buy him.

Don't breed veiltails. No one wants them, and if you don't know it's genetics you have no clue what colors you are going to get. If you want to breed research and buy a brother/sister pair from a reputable breeder. As a pet, I would say go for it!

o3o i'm gonna use veils in my orange dal line. but, then, orange dals are rarer, imo, than other veils, and i know my lps doesn't get their bettas from a run-of-the-mill betta breeder.

you may not, but you'd have to learn genetics, and THOSE are tricky. you'd have to figure out what to do with all the babies, too.

you'll need more than "some people", and i'm sure the LPS doesn't want a few hundred bettas to have to find homes for. most LPS's only get a few dozen bettas at a time.
