Why do I LOVE veiltails so much?

I don't know why, but I loooove veiltails. A healthy adult male veiltail with long, silky flowing fins with an odd coloration like Skyden is amazing to me.


I know they're the common ones.. But they're GORGEOUS.


Does anyone else love veiltails?

I really like them too! Though my first/only baby (so far) is a veil tail. All my local pet store has are veil tails. I think they're gorgeous! There are some more lovely fish there that I'd love to take home ^-^

Glad I'm not the only one! My hopes is to find a pure pink or pure purple VT. :D

i have loved veil tails since I first met red 6-7 months ago. He has 2 inch or so long fins and I love when he wiggles his butt at me. i love watching his fins.

I'm with you, JRF! I love VT's, too. My VT has such beautiful fins. I love watching them flow when he swims around. I also love Halfmoons, because of the large fins.

I love MG and turquoise yellow VTs. I also really like VT females - there is just something so simple and neat about their tails.

Life.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

I love them have two of them I especially like Arashi's it so think and flowy. In my opionion he has the best tail or any of my other fish past and present. I do want other tail types to though as I also love CT. But then I usually just go with whatever fish I connect with so yeah doesn't matter the fish and usually the price cause if there is a connection he's going home with me even if I have to sneak him or her lol

Tiny and Squirtle (squirt)

RIP:To all my sweet bettas swimming under the rainbow bridge. Shall miss you all.
