1. Going to be joining IBC soonish before I start breeding HMPK and HM
Personally I love the HMPK and HM's but if IBC came up with great standards on VT's that I really liked and I found them beautiful like I do the PK, HMPK, and HM's then I would breed, if I didn't like the standards then likely won't sink the time into it. I'm such a HM and PK person.
2. Would love to breed marbles and butterfly but...gah what would butterfly look like on a vt O.o would it even look good? Solid whites and blacks would be cool too. I just feel a black vt betta would look nice. Steel blues would be cool as well, I also though they are already common I like the solid reds. My male I own in a solid red and I think he's beautiful. I like when vt's tails are not too absurdly long because when they are shorter they look better swimming but something tells me IBC would want them long and draping. When they are shorter they tend to look more flag like. I love the tail being thick at the base as well and rounded at the end rather than tapering off like some petstores have been showing up lately. I also like when the dorsal is shorter and doesn't drop over to one side. If it could look more like hm or det's dorsal it would also be nice. xD I guess I already have my personal standard of what a vt should look like. They just look better flaring and swimming like that and I think the fish should make people say WOW when they flare like the HM, Det, and PK's do. If we want the VT's to make it they have to get the same response.
3. I'll be honest, my goal is next year to start showing HM and HMPK fish...not sure about vt. Unless IBC add's them then you can't show them aside from shipping them to other countries and I'm not going to do that.
