I shall watch the video when I'm on a non mobile device.


Now, Mo, which types of betta would create a super delta? A half moon and a delta?
Sometimes he looks like he has ruffled caudal fin, seen in rosetails, but that could just be me.

Baby Buddha(M VT) ~ Oddball (M-DeTxHM)~ Little Chai ~ Lucky(F oto)

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

Even when both parents are HM, some of the fry can be delta or super delta.

Usually a halfmoon and halfmoon create super delta... Not all the fry are guaranteed to be Halfmoon

You can't decorate the tank... And by my beliefs you cannot get extra points. You have a total score and depending on the fishs quality the points get subtracted from a total number. Not starting at 0 and adding on from there. Let's say staring at 100 and subtracting the points depending on how severe the fault is from a total number of 100

Judges look for the biggest faults first and eliminate fish that way. Then they get to to the minor faults and weighing them out. Karens marble beat mine just because he marble pattern was more defined and had better contrast than mine. It is a patterned class.. other were eliminated for having too much of one color, red wash and such. You are judged against the standard.
