Unless there is something horribly unhealthy about EE, they will probably get their own class. HM didnt really get their own class until 2003? Some time around that.

Everything starts somewhere, especially since breeders are CONSTANTLY tweaking genetics trying to get their own look or color!

Just keep swimming.

I don't believe there is anything unhealthy about them. But from what I've been told EEs enlarged fins are a major flaw. But if enough people want them in the ring, they probably will do it.

? Like, color? Or Form? You could probably look up the IBC class standings. I've seen a few beautiful roundtails.

I believe that the IBC already has a class for wild types.

I started this thread to discuss what the current breeding/showing tends, not to hear everyone picking on each other. I think that all this started as a simple misunderstanding of tone, and quickly got out of control. I personally believe that the IBC should take the available VT standard from the European club (the one I posted, from a club completely separate from the IBC) and tweak it, making a class for veiltails in IBC sanctioned shows. A good veil is a beautiful fish.

Basement Bettas, you have beautiful fish. No one was attacking you or the hobby, please don't attack them.

IMO, I like fish with a bit extra branching, as long as their fins aren't messy. My OHM, who has a bit of rosetail, has no problem swimming, and had absolutely no trouble breeding.

My current favorite colors are metalic green, royal blue, and copper, and good lemon yellows. I'm also getting in to marbles and butterflies. I have a steel marble HMDT that I may breed.

What do you think of the Dragonscale? I've been kind getting into the full masking and beautiful metallic sheen on these fish. I like it in the plakats, but LOVE it on the HMs.

Oh, I actually dont know. I thought it was mostly Betta Splendens... But I wouldnt be surprised if they DID. Although it mostly just says the form and color...not species.

Yes, there are IBC standards for wild types and they can be shown. I am not an IBC member so I couldn't tell you what they are. I know Pitgurl breeds her wilds to standard. Maybe she can shed more light on this topic.

I love this thread. So many devoutly-held opinions strongly stated. Very refreshing. Reminds me of the old days on usenet. ;-}

As for that BOS VT on page 6, he reminds me of my VT when he was still tail-biting. After he stopped, his tail grew into a beautiful ellipsoid (extended oval) shape that was quite lovely. Sort of like this, but cleaner and sharper-edged:
