Veiltail Lovers may find this interesting

As most of you know in the IBC shows held in the USA there are no specific classes for veiltails. But in other countries there are. I stumbled upon an international forum and saw the results for the Holland Betta Show held this past August. They hold a class for veiltail males and one for veiltail females.

I thought you guys might like to see the winning veiltails, especially since the veiltail male also won BEST OF SHOW. Just proves VTs can be just as pretty as all the other tail types!

The winning VT female

and the winning VT and BOS male

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

I think we should come up with a name of discrimination of tail type Tailism. I keep a nice delta tail my Petco does not stock good VTs. I keep a female VT I have her for behaver and intelligence. I bought her to eat guppy fry. She is not eating them. I love her it is hard to find a nice Betta in a pet store even harder to find one of a specefic rype.

Veiltails are my favorite. These two are perfect examples of a pure veiltail. It's a shame that they're not allowed to enter the shows in the USA.

Those are amazing animals. Beautiful.

Why doesn't anyone show VT's in the US?

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

about bloody time, if you ask me.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

If only Mal would stop biting his tail he'd have extremely decent form.

Buddha kinda has that shape, but since the picture, his tail has grown a bit more, maybe another half inch...

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