That is a beautiful VT! I may just say the heck to it and breed VT's since they are my fav rather than a more popular type. Once I have everything together for spawning I may have to get in touch with you. A bit more research to do yet though.

Sam Justice and Justmel. I don't post for sale ads in anything other than in the classified. I think it's rude to do otherwise and have called people on it in the past. That's something that should be conducted in private messages.

No problem and totally understood. That's why I said I would have to talk to you sometime. I'm to new to access the classified thread yet, but I will get there. I also looked at some of your fish on aquabid. Anyway, when I have things set up better here and am able to check out the classified I am sure you will here from me!

His fins are a little ripped from when I tried to add him to the sorority
I live just North of Boston, just South of the NH border.
I would love him! Bostons about 3 hours and 15 min from me, so a bit far to drive! How much for shipping? Pm me!!

Ok, a show veil will have the Caudal and the tail meeting or over laping, no "Sattelites" or "Daffodils" The top line will be judged the same as any other HM.
Full tail not skinny or pointed...just saying, if you want Veils to be considered you must breed for the standard, and to show, you must be the breeder.
I also breed Veils and I was around when they were at shows, and the talk is if the right person or persons get in there will be something done, hey vote for the one that is talking about them hmmmm her is a hint Bas...

Picture a girl with long hair that has a sweep at the end from a side profile.

Here is somewhat how a Show Veil should look, this is NOT a real good example but you get the idea, see how the fins are close together and not all separate?

No huge gaps.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the point of most breeds is to basically make the fish look like a giant frilly perfectly round pancake of fins right? (Please note I have no show experience lol, I have simply been reading guides for fun)
Only with a veil's tail isnt it better to aim for a shape more consistent with a tear drop like that one? A very very fat tear drop with eyes at the point.
