OH wow I didn't realise that the fish could be entered even if you can't attend. So you just ship them to the show and they get shipped back afterwards? Do they handle all that shipping okay?

I still wish they had some local shows though, it would be interesting to see the quality that other people are offering and I think it would be great fun to just be there, enjoy the atmosphere and see how everything is run and so on.

Looking at this crowntail before anything was said about him I thought he was pretty nice and I thought he had quite a good spread but I just had no idea about all those other faults. I still think he is lovely in his own right though what you said about him certainly makes a lot of sense. This thread can really help you appreciate a fish with good balance/symmetry/form when you see one.

HM is coming... learning curve with the photo editing program and time. Got a busy work schedule month of October so the house needed some major cleaning to stay ahead. And had fish to get bagged and ready to ship to the next show in IN.

Thanks for this post, it's very informative. I'm looking into breeding Betta at the moment. I'm kind of curious about what to look for in coloration, so far I seem to gather that even/single or bi colors are desired. Though I feel as if some multicolored Betta look awesome too!

Also I love the Betta that you have up on aquabid!

I also wanted to say thank you for this post! I'm looking into getting started breeding (I actually have a bid on one of your females on Aquabid right now! ) It's nice to continue learning about genetics and conformation in bettas so I can breed the best possible fish and know what to look for in the offspring to see who's worthy of breeding. I can't wait to have money to join the IBC for even more info! Thanks again! It's nice to have tips from an expert.
