Thinking of entering my Betta

Is my Betta good enough for a Betta Show?
His name is Dreamless, His color is grizzle, He's a CT EE. I got him from my friend that got it from a Breeder. This will be my first time doing this.

My friend bought him for me on my birthday. She bought him online from a breeder.

Though I love your betta, he wouldn't be the best for a show. His rays are uneven and messy, and I do not know about grizzles but that isn't really sought after. Plus it seems like crowntails have to have 180 degree caudals nowadays, sadly.

Someone told me his color was grizzle. I have another crowntail that I can maybe try, he's less of a mess

Both of them are pet quality, I'm afraid.

Anyho, you can't enter bettas in shows that you haven't bred yourself unless you are on a team with the one that bred it.

Also, I thought that there's no class for EE's? (And that they wouldn't win in the other classes, because of the symmetry issue?)

Here's an article that discusses judging standards for CTs, including desired and undesired traits:

As a practicing new breeder (Ashtin Buchanan) I must agree , you cannot and should not enter fish that you yourself did not breed, that wouldnt be fair to the breeders if you were to import a very nice fish and entered it only to try to win, without having done the breeding work.

I think it would be more rewarding if you bred yourself, as you would feel better about it than using another breeder's fish :)
