Ideal betta form chart?

Hey guys, I recall seeing a chart somewhere of the ideal form for both males and females for HMPK, HM and CT. Does anyone have that? I'd really like to take a look!

I became a member of the ibc and when you are a member all your questions are answered well maybe not all but many.

100Gal Cichlid tank, 80 Gal planted Community, 20Gal planted Betta, 7gal planted Betta, 20gal goldfish grow out. Yeah I like fish.

Mmm...yes and no. Most of the pics in the standards are old, dark and outdated. In this time of technology the IBC should be able to have computer diagrams done up as well as better clearer pics of fish and anatomy.

I think there should be labelled diagrams in the standards showing where and how everything is measured. They really need all the new interest they can get. The easier they make it to figure out what the standards are and what breeders should be breeding for the more people will show long term interest.

Hopefully the IBC is setting its focus on modernizing and attracting new interest. IMO betta breeding really is fun but I probably have a better attention span than most people thinking about taking an interest. I have done A LOT of research. I have read countless papers, blogs, websites, etc. trying to increase my knowledge. Most people casually thinking about getting into a hobby aren't going to put that much effort in it.

To answer the OP, the way I did it was I made my own diagram. I printed out a drawing of a show plakat, read through the standards and filled in the areas on the drawing with dimensions and measurements. I keep that handy when I'm looking at breeding stock so I don't forget anything.

^---- you win all the internets. that is exactly what i have been looking for to try to figure out what makes a "good" betta, and what makes a "substandard" one. However, I think all my rescue fishies are gorgeous and wonderful and perfect. ^_^

Yep. The drawing itself is not mine. I printed it and labelled with the IBC standards so I didn't have to keep reading back through the standards.

Here is a good site but some of these standards are not ibc or excepted by the ibc. I don't think the ibc recognizes the 3 different kinds of plakats. Someone might know better.

The ibc needs to make there site a bit more user friendly that is for sure.
