That male is a lovely VT example. I am rather partial to VTs though :)

Since in the USA veil tails are very much over bred, and are massive in numbers and don't have the "perfect" forms of other tail types they aren't shown. They are MUTTS to the shows. There will always be heated debates (or other words, arguments) about veiltails, but really there just needs to be a SMALL group who show bettas in their community to have any tail type accepted. Just a thought basically... Do it yourself. They won't lol

Hm...Sena you might be on to something. If VT lovers really want to do their best by the VT type, making local clubs and small scale shows might be the way to go. The VT could still be improved on, colors formed, and fins shaped just like the other fin types.

You're brilliant!

Getting veiltails recognised by IBC can be done. You just have to get enough breeders to agree and begin showing really good ones in the other types class.

So what exactly would you say would be desirable or undesirable traits in a veiltail? If you want them in the IBC, what would be the standard?

I don't know anything when it comes to form, but I do not find that female appealing at all (in other words I find her ugly). I think its her pointy tail as I have one that looks almost identical color wise but with a more rounded tail.

Anyways, I love VT's alot more then the more popular HMPK's. If I was gonna breed for color, I would work on making them in other shades as almost all I see are blue or red in color.

I do have a few VT males and females. I have a male in with my 5 girls (he was mislabled as a female but was actually a very young male). Once he grew up, I was kinda hoping he would spawn with one of the girls but he seems to not be too into females.

That's funny, I actually enjoy the pointed tailed vts more than the round ones! I guess that's why it's tough when it comes to standards on them heh
