Yes. You have to have bred the fish yourself unless you are entering In a group entry where you an another person have raised the fish. They don't "have" to be purebred but a mix between a VT and a CT would have super messy fins.. Ideally the only cross you should do is single tail x double tail or halfmoon x PK or HMPK.also, there are certain standards so you just can't go picking from a petstore, you should ideally go looking on AB for good quality fish

Fish are judged based on the IBC standards which are quite challenging to achieve perfection. If you show a fish you did not raise yourself, then you don't get points.

That seems fair. It's kinda like steeling credit. *sigh* If only I could breed.

Thank you! Here is my dragon HMPK pair, my salamander pair, and the blue marble male I am going to cross to a blue Mustard Gas female. Maybe I'll cross my HMPK salamanders into my Salamander HM line to thicken the body and rays later on

I love your Red Dragon pair! BTW, is your Salamander male an Over HM? I like your Marble's pattern.

Yes, he is an over halfmoon. Hence why I'm breeding him to a girl with less branching. 4-6 ray branching
