He would be a greatest, just not breeding quality.

Most AB bettas arent very nice IMO. Very few catch my eye.

Same. We should set up an auction site where there are minimum conformation requirements. xD

That would be much better for the people looking for actual quality fish rather than the average "He/She looks so pretty, so he/she must be nice quality."

He isn't show quality but a good specimen non the less.
His main problem is excessive branching but very small/narrow webbing, making his fins curl like that. Further his dorsal is leaning back when it should lean forward.
But he does have good general body form. He has balanced fins sizes and I love his ventral - wide blade shape.

If you do work with such a form - do not breed to a sibling. Get a female with less ray but wide webbing. Try to work on making the fins straight and firm. Then cross to a double tail with long front ray dorsal.

It's more work but you can get good offspring from him. If there is something better, I suggest buying a different fish and get your moneys worth.

Ok,
here are the 2 I decided on
http://www.aquabid.com/uploads/fwbettashm1338916977.jpg


http://www.aquabid.com/uploads/fwbettashm1339040148.jpg
Also getting females for both.
They are what I am looking for,I try to get nice HMs that you can not find around here,believe me the ones here at Petco,Petsmart,Walmart,and the 1 petstore that carries Bettas have really crappy Bettas!!!!
I belong to an Aquarium Society and there are very few Bettas at the auctions,and the ones that are there aren't all that great,don't know why.
There were only 2 at our Spring Auction,so with these and the ones i already have I can take some decent ones to our auctions.
I also rent a table at our local Flea-Market(when the weather is nice)and sell them there.
I have a CT spawn ready to go in a few months.
So,let me know about these 2,I did not post pics of the females because I don't have any.
I also got a couple of nice females last week from BasementBettas,Hms.

I like em. Good symmetry and body on both. Rough edges but that can be cleaned up.
