I posted this in a diffrent form, I didn't relies THIS form was here DX

If you're talking about breeding different tail types, yes you can, but the result may not be what you want.

I agree that VT's are very pretty, but it's usually not a good idea to breed VT's because it is hard to find homes for them unless you want to keep possibly 100-200 fish.

Yeah I've been told that a lot that's why I wanted to see if I could breed him with something other then a vailtail, to get something a little diffrent. I all so all ready have sevrel friends that would want some, I would all so keep a few myself.

You usually wait until they are three to four months old. The female will have an egg spot, and unless they are plakats, the males will have longer fins than the females.

Do you know if I could use a split tank for breeding or no? I'm going to try breeding this summer so I want to know if I need to get two new tanks or not
