VT Breeders?

I'd like to know if anyone breeds/buys VT... I know they are really common, but does anyone breed them?

If not, let me know what tail type you like and breed! : )

I like VT, but the only ones around me are pet store vt and I wouldn't breed them :( If I do breed, I plan on breeding HM Dragons.

VT is a traditional long finned tail type. No matter what kind of VT, you will always get VT - no challenge.

Nowadays people prefer HM, HMPK, HMDT, and even HMCT. They are in many ways more attractive than VT. Further, breeding HM is much more challenging because you may not get HM if you don't know what to breed.

If you want to easily rehome your fry, I'd suggest breeding in that direction.

Exactly, breed what you can rehome/sell which is usually whatever is popular. Breed from breeders Bettas so you know what to expect with your spawns :)

I's love to breed VT's but I couldn't even give them away around here :(

sometimes, you can find VTs on Aquabid. it's pretty rare, though(there's a beautiful creamy yellow up there now!). if you want to breed VTs, feel free to, but it may be hard to find them homes, since VTs are so common. x:

I've got a VT pair that I'm hoping to get a spawn from soon. Thankfully I have friends I can gift them too if it goes...too well? lol. If not I have a few other people who already said they'd love to buy some if it works out. I figured I might as well start relatively simple, and relatively cheap. {I've seen some of the most beautiful betta's, that I would love to try to breed out, for $60...for my first attempt I think that's too much, hahaha} But either way, I love fish. I wanted to be a marine biologist when I was 5! So for me, this is more learning, and adding to my betta family, than anything else. :)

I'm going to be breeding my male VT with my female DT in the coming weeks. They may not be as popular as other types, but personally I think VTs are gorgeous :)
