Minus the mohawk.

But I digress! I don't much give a crap for 'fashion' when it comes to animal breeding. VT's are, like it or not, a betta tail type. I commend the folks who are looking to restore the type to the show ring. VT's are pretty darned special, in my book. I'd breed a healthy, well-conformed pair if I was so inclined and had homes for the fry.

If it weren't for the fact Maine has that Mystery Disease, I would've kept his 12 fry. Veiltail with PK background no doubt, but it was a decent VT finnage... Which here seems darn rare. I'd have to get a VT from Big Al's...Now THEY have great finnage for VT o_O

If VTs were allowed in American shows there'd be no issue breeding them provided that they were from pure lines.

Europe has us beat on that.

Or better yet, grab a baby betta from Petco. They are mostly veiltails anyways.
