Double veil tail

What would happen if I bred a cellophane marble double tail male with a veil tail female

What tail type is the male? Also breeding anything with a VT the spawn would mostly be VTs. The Double tail trait is recessive as well. So you would breed the DT with the VT and get a bunch of single tail vts who are carrying the DT geno. Then you either sibling pair or daughter father pair spawn to get the next spawn to have about 25% double tails. You can not breed two DTs together because it leads to deformities such as bent spine.

that's a great mind set ya got there! :D

DT veils aren't as common as other tail types, i think. it'd be interesting to see, but, yeah, in the first batch, you probably won't have ANY DTs.

I tried mixing CT and VT almost succeeded something ended up killing all my fry, I think they were deformed, upon closer inspection I noticed I did have about a 50% DT which I thought was weird.

D: it must have been heartbreaking, to see all your little ones dead. ;A; i'm sorry you lost the spawn.

They all were deformed and couldnt ever develop a good swim bladder and ended up dying but I am going to try a dt ct again sometime when I get a good ct male.
