He isn't exactly show quality, but this is my veil tail, Commander Crunch/Moscato. I really bought him on an impulse. I picked him up and just had a bizarre "I must have this fish" feeling. I even had to buy an extra tank for him.

The picture of him in his cup was taken at the store. I was showing him to my friend along with a text that said "I need this betta!"








Most of my friends prefer my DT Delfino because he's blue, but Commander has such a huge personality for a little fish.

okay so this guy was for sale here a few days ago he has since been placed on hold. Think he was like $30 US. I was tempted but for spending that much I would prefer a HM plakat. Beautiful boy though, it is not often that a VT catches my attention but this guy sure did!

It's one of Fishchick's VT males if I am not mistaken.

God she gets some nice fish in. It is almost enough to tempt me into splendens.

I wonder who her supplier is for VTs as she always gets in unusually coloured ones with generally pretty good form.

Anybody have a betta that looks like this? I would definitely be all over one.

Daffodil
Satelite this is the form I would avoid, color is great but terrible form for a veil

Here is the form you should persue.




These have flaws but this is what was considered show form back when I was showing in 1973 the others were European form and not well liked By Jim Sonnier and the guys I knew


Soory for the double pic..I don't know how to take em off
