99% of the fish on aquabid are not show quality fish. 100% of fish at the lfs are not show quality. To get true show quality fish that have a chance to compete at ibc shows you would likely need to purchase top stock from breeders that actually compete and get points at this level. Breeding true show quality requires an investment in time, facility and travel that would be impossible for me ever. There are a ton of breeders on the internet that will tell people they have show quality...well lets see how many points they have and competitions they actually place in. 99% of these guys do not sell real ibc show quality as well. Most members here own pet quality fish just like me.

My fish are NOT show quality. Did not really think that had to be said actually.

I breed cool looking unique marbles for aquabid and petstores and try to keep ibc standards in mind when picking breeders. Any fish I produce would be considered high pet store and middle of the road aquabid.

There are a couple true show quality breeders that are members here. If anyone wants to know who just pm me. Pretty sure you wont find real show quality for 15 bucks a fish.

Anyways this is a check outta here for me. Good luck everyone.

Actually, show quality are not as rare as we would think. Many fish on AB have potential to create offsprings that would definitely place; however, placing is heavily dependent on what kind of fish are sent to the show.Your fish have potential, but I'm sure you're not even showing the best of the spawns. The term use of 'show quality' is over rated. You have good fish, don't be discourage. I hope you didn't refer to checking out as in leaving for good. Would be a shame.

AB fish like CJ said usually have many flaws. There are only a small percent who have true show quality and good starter stock.

Any fish can have potential. You can work with only like 4 fish to start a show Line even if the fish are bad. It will just take years and years and years to breed out the bad traits.

Many AB breeders lie and don't have show stock

Frankly Mah your hardly qualified to be giving anyone here advice on what is or what is not quality or show fish. You need to get a better handle on the genetics and standards yourself before dishing out opinions or critiques on anyone's fish. Your experience and success with these fish is very limited to say the least.

I believe I do have decent grasp on standards. I agree I do not have expirience to have enough knowledge on genetics yet. That being said, I have gained an eye for flaws and critiqing bettas.

No, I disagree.

I have to say Mahsfish I have seen you in a few spawning threads/journals talking down other members' fish as not being show or 'top' quality.

Not everyone wants to breed show quality fish. The actual population of betta owners who show their fish is vastly outnumbered by those who just want pretty pets.

Continually telling people (who are most likely aware of it themselves) that their fish are not show quality is rather rude.
