Attention Veiltail Lovers and Breeders!!!

I know I posted this like WAY back in January, but there are soooo many new members I thought I would repost it!

Here is a tentative set of show standards for veiltails. In case any of you veiltail lovers are interested are interested in developing your own veiltail line, it will give you something to shoot for!

Standard Veiltail (VT)
Dorsal (dorsal fin)
The Dorsal is narrower at its base and has fewer rays than the (other fin variants.)(1) The fin should run in a sickle-shaped manner and not exceed over ¾ of the body length of the fish. It should not (run out in individual rays.) (2) Overlapping of the Dorsal over the fish body is not desired.
Caudal (caudal fin)
The caudal fin should be full with a broad base, but (long stretched.) (3) It should be at least the same length as the body of the fish. The rays come out of the tail root steeply rising in the upper part of the fin and then after reaching its highest point at 20% of the entire fin length, drop down in an even (elbow.) (4)
Within the lower part of the fin the rays come out almost straight
from the tail root with an (easy upward arranged)
(5) curvature and then
drop down parallel to the other fin rays. Thus results in a light sickle-shaped (long stretched optics.)
(6) The Caudal must be able to be
carried easily by the fish in its entire length. The ends of the rays
should not have any spikes or indentations. An (easily corrugated)
(7)
fin border is permitted. The fin volume is to be stretched completely
(not too many rays and/or too much skin between the rays, no
pleating) when the fish flairs.

Anal (anal fin)
The anal fin should (set up at the highest point of the body) ( and
be at least as long as the body and run out in its deepest end
(pointedly. The form is to resemble a parallelogram.)
(9)
Ventrals (ventral fins)
The ventral fins are to be the same length as one another and should look like a curved knife blade. They should BE at least 1/3 as long as the
body.

This isn't from the IBC though is it? It looks a lot like the standards from the EHBBC... I haven't heard anything about the IBC setting standards for Veils

Nope it's not from the IBC, I believe it's the german standard. But it is what the IBC is going to be basing their standard off of when they do start to set up an official standard. But at least this standard will give those wanting to breed veiltails for show something to aim towards. At least there is some kind of standard now somewhere! Haha!!

That was my question too Jackie........

When did the IBC add veiltails, I knew that they thought about adding a show standard for them.....but hadn't heard that it had happened....

Any links?

Who wrote/set/approved/developed these VT standards?

They're the standards from the EHBBC I believe. I'm on a European based board that listed similar standards.

From what I researched back when I wanted to breed VT the reason the IBC doesn't want a standard for VT is because they are asymmetrical. I would quote it but since its another board I don't want to get in trouble.

I wouldn't mind seeing some standards for VT set forth by the IBC. I think one of the problems though is it is hard to get a standard form of VT to breed true. Don't quote me on that though LOL
