That's good to know Olympia. It's not that I have a problem with HM or the like, they are pretty (just not my thing) it's just that I get annoyed when people talk down about VT who are the originals and diserve a little respect. I want them to have SOME kind of standing so they can quit being popped out in those terrible "puppy mill" conditions. Since no one wants them, breeders get away with that stuff atm which makes me sad

My Dog came from a breeder using field dogs that are champions. It may be Spades are harder to breed or people dont like them?

I actually really love spade tails, and I haven't seen many, you're right. I've never seen one in a pet store, but maybe I am just missing them. I've only owned long finned bettas, so I really want a PK, HMPK or a ST to see how different they are.

I think it's because spade tail is a unstable recessive gene.

One of our petsmarts has spade tail females, giants male/females all for pet store price. But I'm not very interested in giants, I have heard they are expensive online?
