New VT standards:


The veiltail is a form which gradually has disappeared from the class list of many international Betta shows. We personally think this is a negative development, because we should not forget that it was this variety which was the base of the development of the modern longfinned show Betta. Additionally the veiltail, without any doubt, is the most known variety of Betta splendens among the public. It often is this variety which is responsible for people getting "infected" with the "betta-virus". Because the veiltail is still greatly appreciated among aquarium hobbyists and is clearly distinct from the other longfinned show Bettas we think there still should be room for this variety within the show circuit. We therefore developed a show standard for veiltails and hope that this standard will stimulate and challenge breeders to bring the current quality of the veiltail to a higher level by well-thought and dedicated breeding programs (see Figure 3A).
