He looks like a VT. It'd be nice to see him flaring.

"Nothing like it, baby!" -Cabanela

Why did I become a fishkeeper in the first place...? Because someone has to look out for the fish who have no one on their side.

Previously he used to flare ...nowadays he just tries to attack his image so trying to get him to flare is a bit risky plus I've lost my small mirror when i get it ill try again... N thx for the help ...

He is just a regular VT

blue and red wash veiltail male betta :)

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Veil is the correct word, as in "Bridal Veil"
Vail means to lower, descend; to make a gesture (typically tip of a hat) of respect/deference/submission.

No disrespect, but I have to point that out every time, because there are several streets in my neighborhood that are incorrectly spelled/worded and Vail is one of the mistakes. It bothers me to this day, a year and a half later.

Maybe it's like my iPhone and the Mac and auto-corrects I know it does for 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.
