i love VTs but they aren't my favorite, i have one right now (my avi):

but no it isn't wierd people have differences and similarities, and there not "undesirable" it is only people he places in shows (not all, most).

Yeah, and I like how the anal fin looks like an upside-down sail :)

Super veils? They're just heavy finned lol.

They are undesirable because they are SO mass bred that no one has a pure line! I'm going to be working on creating a pure line of veils by using two ray HMPKs into interesting colored veils.

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.

Purple is a rare color and never shows true in photos. Chard's purple line is totally different than mine. I based mine off of multis, he based his off of coppers I believe.
