Can I see...

A show quality veiltail and crowntail?

I've seen the diagrams, but I'm curious about the actual fish.

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

I don't think veiltails can be shown but I'm not positive. Someone will come along soon to let us know.

veil tails i believe are banned from showing on the show circut and are not on the ibc so i don't think they can be shown but i don't see why sure they are mass bred but that could happen to any tail type veiltails are beautiful fish that come in many beautiful colors so i don't see why so many people don't like them. But anyways have a good day

VT's aren't accepted as a show breed. Don't exactly know why but that's the way it is.

You can show a VT, but because all Betta standards call for even balance, the VT has a major fault in it's tail.

Host clubs can include a VT class if they want to take the time to judge, and if the judge is willing. They would not get the IBC points, but shown as a pet fish, the host club can give out a certificate for the winner.

I want Lone Star Bettas to have a VT/Pet fish class for those that are keepers of Betta, but that will be later :D

Veils are not show fish. There is no standard and there is no place for them in the shows.

Not banned.. just not competitive. They would have to show against a HM.. and there is no competition there.
