Yes you can cause they are both just color morphs and finnage morphs of the same fish: Betta splendens
The best way to keep the phenotypes however is to breed similar types together so you get double strong genes of that trait. In one of my pairings, I got Regular, Delta tailed, 1/2 moon and double tails out of 1 spawn and these were 2 regular fish on the outside (just with all those genes inside of them.) You can breed for this result or you can just get lucky. ( I just got lucky . )

Hope this helps
