Betta Abbreviations

I've seen a lot of confusion about this so I hope it helps:

Tail Types:

VT = Veiltail

DT = Double tail

CT = Crown tail

DeT = Delta tail

HM = Halfmoon

HMPK = Halfmoon Plakat

HS = Halfsun

ST = Single tail

Color patterns:

BF = Butterfly

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.

Some that are still common but don't necessarily relate to bettas only:

WC = Water Change
LFS = Local Fish Store
LPS = Local Pet Store
BWE = Black Water Extract

Yuzu (Yellow Dragon HMPK) / Rei (Marble Dragon HMF) / Quill (Brown Tabby and White Pancake Monster)[/FONT]

Or DTHHMPK... Double tail half moon plakat (I've seen someone say it here before!)

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows
