Cool Excaliber Betta

I think the color's amazing... but the tail's whacky.

Looks like a spade but a very bad one. Ideally a spade tail should look like this guy:


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.

apparently, it's not a spade tail at all. just a deformed HM. if i'm not mistaking, it was suggested she'd probably had a chunk of tail bitten off by a sibling that just grew back funky.

It's just a deformed tail that the seller gave a corny name to -to make it seem more important than it really is.
