Does anyone have a link to the IBC website? I'd like to look into membership, even though I'm not really planning to show. IF they nail down a standard for Veils, I may go into breeding them at some point.

I was wondering about that, breeding to HM females to perhaps get nicer form and tail on vt's. Seem like a good place to start knocking out all the kinks in the vt line?

You don't have to be a breeder to join the IBC.

The site isn't much now, but with the elections coming up one of the runners for President has a lot of great ideas to improve the site along with information and help.. for now it's good, but most of the information, etc you get in emails and access to different groups once you join.

Breeder so I have too many to count and too many named to list here!

VTs aren't showable because they aren't symmetrical. In case anyone was still looking for that answer.

My membership to the IBC is up. Will renew next season if I show.

And LadyVictorian, I'm afraid it doesn't work that way entirely. VTs will have to be crossed for color but the form may never get on track but since there's no IBC standard we don't have much to work with unless people are showing with bettas4all in Europe.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Might have to watch the traditional VT tail is not lost in a cross to HM. And I have seen VT tails that come to a point and others more boxed off .. or banged if you have a horse back ground. Would have to figure out a reasonable standard..

I like the examples a ways back with the butterflies and the purple that were posted, that nice tail thick at the base and rounded at the ends. A shorter dorsal than most petshops but when they flare it's more dramatic however still longer than say a HM or DeT. Perhaps breed for medium length of tail too, not too short that it's going back to PK roots but not so long it's draping far behind the fish either. Still get the good vt shape and everything just a more refined form from what the petshops are spitting out which isn't much really.
