Attention Veiltail Lovers! - The VT Show Standard!

Here is a tentative set of show standards for veiltails. In case any of you veiltail lovers are interested are interested in developing your own veiltail line, it will give you something to shoot for!

Standard Veiltail (VT)
Dorsal (dorsal fin)
The Dorsal is narrower at its base and has fewer rays than the (other fin variants.)(1) The fin should run in a sickle-shaped manner and not exceed over of the body length of the fish. It should not (run out in individual rays.) (2) Overlapping of the Dorsal over the fish body is not desired.
Caudal (caudal fin)
The caudal fin should be full with a broad base, but (long stretched.) (3) It should be at least the same length as the body of the fish. The rays come out of the tail root steeply rising in the upper part of the fin and then after reaching its highest point at 20% of the entire fin length, drop down in an even (elbow.) (4)
Within the lower part of the fin the rays come out almost straight
from the tail root with an (easy upward arranged)
(5) curvature and then
drop down parallel to the other fin rays. Thus results in a light sickle-shaped (long stretched optics.)
(6) The Caudal must be able to be
carried easily by the fish in its entire length. The ends of the rays
should not have any spikes or indentations. An (easily corrugated)
(7)
fin border is permitted. The fin volume is to be stretched completely
(not too many rays and/or too much skin between the rays, no
pleating) when the fish flairs.

Anal (anal fin)
The anal fin should (set up at the highest point of the body) (8) and
be at least as long as the body and run out in its deepest end
(pointedly. The form is to resemble a parallelogram.)
(9)
Ventrals (ventral fins)
The ventral fins are to be the same length as one another and should look like a curved knife blade. They should BE at least 1/3 as long as the
body.

I know isn't it wonderful! Veils are my favorite tail type! And now I can work on my own strain and actually have a standard and a goal in mine and an opportunity to show them when the time comes!

As I said it is a tentative show standard. This is a german show standard for the veiltails and we are working on developing our own based off of this.
