This is what you are seeing in the standard:
"AREA 6 CLASS ONLY - BLACK ORCHID

The following Black Patterned Betta for Area 6 only is included in Division E Classes. "

Area 6 is not the US so that color is not acceptable here in a show class.
Thanks for clearing that up again!
I really hope to be as knowledgeable as you are someday

I would delete it, but the "edit" button is not showing up.

No problem.. most don't know. If you are new to the IBC that will come in time and there are no hard feelings. They just let you know and get the posts deleted.

The BO is a beautiful color and the classes are a bit different over seas. Now that you are a member go look at the other area show results. You will see the different classes and also what AB breeders are winning classes in their area. If you are a serious breeder, knowing that an AB seller also breeds to your standard helps not having a lot of junk up the genetic pike. And you will tend to see those winners consistently have better form in their fish for sale. If you are going to buy and import.. need to make sure you get your monies worth.
