I don't know much about showing but your first boy has really neat coloring. :) He's very pretty.

That is the art of breeding show bettas. Not only breeding quality parents but gettting them to a show in perfect condition. Not as easy as one would think.

one of the reasons dont do CT's.. those rays must be straight and no curling.. not easy.

...just to make sure everyone understands..."Bred yourself"...means you bred the parents and you are showing their babies. You have to raise the fry to show size, not breed the parents then show the parents. I just realized that the words that we use can be misunderstood :(.

You don't have to have bred the parents.. you can buy two fish and show offspring bred from them as long as you spawned the parents and raised the offspring.

see what I mean...lol. **that you breed a pair (ie "the parents" )and raise the offspring.** Those offspring are the fish you are allowed to show.
