Anything without a 180* caudel will lose in the shows. That's probably why DeTs, SDeTs, and VTs aren't going to win and all that. Don't know about that "Singletail" category, though.

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

I know there are breeders up there as I have met them at shows here in the US. Have you checked with the IBC to see if anything is going on up there?

This is too bad. I recently read something about tailbiters possibly being a genetic anxiety-type of trait bred into a lot of halfmoons because breeders tend to throw the biters into the spawn tank since they cant show them at the time anyway. Then there is a theory that tailbiters are being bred a lot. The article said "think about it, you don't see a lot of tailbiting veiltails, do you?"

I am no expert about that so I don't know if that's really true. But it makes me want a veiltail next time because I have a halfmoon that ate almost his entire fin off.

I have not checked the ibc recently but will do that. I know there is few breeders up here but is there someone you reccomend buying from i would like a nice green, blue, or red dragon pair to begin my line of bettas. A link to a website would be nice i do not have pay-pal so they would need to accept cash if on AB i would like to check out some auctions though let me know.

I have a 2 1/2 year old male who is a tailbiter and also he is a veil tail. I don't think tailbiting discriminates. I could obviously say it's more in the long tailed types though. Can't reach it can't bite it right?

Probably true. Although my HM looks shorter than a plakat tail at this point! Little bugger apparently can reach a LOT. :(

Well I guess that theory I mentioned was wrong. Good to know.

Pudge just started tail biting. It's not fun at all. I normally wouldn't mind, especially if it makes him feel better, but he's ruining his butterfly Dx

The good thing though is that his fins HAVE grown so he's biting off the excess.

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