Minus the mohawk.

But I digress! I don't much give a crap for 'fashion' when it comes to animal breeding. VT's are, like it or not, a betta tail type. I commend the folks who are looking to restore the type to the show ring. VT's are pretty darned special, in my book. I'd breed a healthy, well-conformed pair if I was so inclined and had homes for the fry.

If it weren't for the fact Maine has that Mystery Disease, I would've kept his 12 fry. Veiltail with PK background no doubt, but it was a decent VT finnage... Which here seems darn rare. I'd have to get a VT from Big Al's...Now THEY have great finnage for VT o_O

Hopefully mine come in here soon. Then once we move, end of this month I can send some to you =D

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

If VTs were allowed in American shows there'd be no issue breeding them provided that they were from pure lines.

Europe has us beat on that.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Or better yet, grab a baby betta from Petco. They are mostly veiltails anyways.
