Showable Bicolors?

Are fish like this showable in IBC shows?

Okay, thanks :) If I were to breed him to http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1369194139 to a girl similar to that, the fry would most likely be be patterned. What category would they be able to show in?
And are split ventrals genetic?

She is kinda more grizzle. You will get a lot of variance. The only ones competitive in shows will be the marbles with 50/50 color split. Doubt you will get clean bi-colors with that female.

I agree with BasementBettas...I would think a Judge would move him to Marble though...

Agreed. He would be shown in the marble class. But the caudal need some work and hose split ventrals need to be fixed, the gotta be thicker and stockier with only 1 tip.

Okay thanks guys! :) I'm breeding him to a girl with not-so-good finnage. I'm probably going to show the fry for fun, but they most likely would not place.
