Genetics, standards etc

Ive been reading the past few days about breeding. Whether I ever do it or not remains to be seen (convincing my bf is the biggest hurdle, but I have not decided if I will do it or not as it is a big endeavour). I am very interested in learning more about both general genetics and betta genetics as well as betta show standards. I know the basics of genetics (think grade 12 bio class!) but was wondering if anyone had any good sites or books to get a better understanding of genetics and how it affects bettas both in colour and fin types. Also looking for show standards or "what makes a good quality betta". I dont want to join the IBC at this point, just want to read :)


Thanks!
(im that strange kind of person who likes to know how stuff works!)

I know you don't want to join but the IBC is the best place to go to. They do have an open to the public forum but the standards are on their members only Yahoo! group.
