That's great! Can't wait to see the F2 of your Dragons and MGs. ^^ Hope your Bettas steel the show! Lol

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Yes. You have to have bred the fish yourself unless you are entering In a group entry where you an another person have raised the fish. They don't "have" to be purebred but a mix between a VT and a CT would have super messy fins.. Ideally the only cross you should do is single tail x double tail or halfmoon x PK or HMPK.also, there are certain standards so you just can't go picking from a petstore, you should ideally go looking on AB for good quality fish

Fish are judged based on the IBC standards which are quite challenging to achieve perfection. If you show a fish you did not raise yourself, then you don't get points.

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.

That seems fair. It's kinda like steeling credit. *sigh* If only I could breed.

Thank you! Here is my dragon HMPK pair, my salamander pair, and the blue marble male I am going to cross to a blue Mustard Gas female. Maybe I'll cross my HMPK salamanders into my Salamander HM line to thicken the body and rays later on

I love your Red Dragon pair! BTW, is your Salamander male an Over HM? I like your Marble's pattern.

Yes, he is an over halfmoon. Hence why I'm breeding him to a girl with less branching. 4-6 ray branching
