This section was created so that people can learn about showing bettas and everything pertaining to shows and showing. We don't want to limit access to it because we want people to be able to learn from it. What we want is to eliminate is posts where people want petstore bettas measured by the same stsndards as show bettas. I know that my bettas would fall seriously short of show standards but are perfect pets. Those of you with petstore fish, enjoy your fish and let them be the pets they were meant to be and don't measure them by show standards.

I have seen 3 or 4 of those judging threads. All of them not show worthy.

Yes, Olympia, it should be a tautology, but is too often an oxymoron. ;-}

Don't recall the OPs making the stink but others that jumped on the band wagon. They are the ones that should feel bad for just making trouble. This section was being used for other than its intent and I called attention to it. No big deal. If it is you are on the wrong section of this forum. Even kids should be able to handle correction with out hurt feelings. If they can't gonna be a rough road thru life.

There just aren't classes for them in the IBC. Some of the judges have mentioned a desire to add more classes, possibly one for orchids, but it takes time to do these things.

And if there isn't a class for the fish's specific color type, then they are either placed in whatever color division they best fit in to (though they probably have severe faults for that division), or they are simply not showable outside of Form and Finnage. That's how it goes.

Right now, Orchids would be shown in the Blacks, but since they have so much blue, they'd be a severely faulted black fish and not place well at all. If they had their own class though, they'd show much better.

Black orchid is a bad black fish. a black fish should have no other color.. so the orchid pattern is a fault. the came about trying to get fertile females. So you would hope for some really good black fish with the orchids in your spawns.

The dumbos have one fin grossly out of proportion to the other fins. A show betta is all about symetry. Now breed the other fins to be in proportion and you are back in business.. but that might be a bit much.
