Ya I hate judging standards :P
I gave up trying for them months ago. I haven't gone through the program myself but some betta forums have a mentorship program that is online and is step by step and more hands on. Maybe if we could start one here it would help alot of our members.
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.
