I know this is off topic but I couldn't agree more. Case in point, I love the fish I have purchased from AB, but my male pet store beta Dovahkiin will hold my heart for the simple fact that he is my baby, and no one can ever tell me that their fish is more beautiful than him. I will shake my head and tell them that I think their fish is beautiful, but he is still my baby.

i have a V tail his name is popcorn and hes super pretty but its so hard to get a pic of him because once he sees my moms pone he goes crazy and when he does stay still he looks right at the pone and you can only see his face lol and when he waches TV you have to turn a weird way and the tank is a weird shape and he looks all wavy (his favorite show is hanna montana LOL)

here are some relly bad pics of him:







he has fin rot

this is popcorn he is my baby S.I.P popcorn :(

I thought there was another member running. hmm...

However, there are a bunch of members here who are also IBC members, they're in a prime position to pester the living daylights out of the IBC. lol

There is already a way to get an IBC class for VTs: breed very nice ones, and send them to shows under the Variations class. If the Powers that Be see that there is genuine interest in showing VTs, and breeding show quality Vts, not just losts of people who *wish* VTs had their own class, they'll create a VT class.

That's at least how I understand it. =)
