My grandpa used to see them all the time when he was overseas, but they weren't in puddles like we think. Not tiny mudpuddles in the road, but small ponds about a foot deep to 8-9 feet long. Their ancestors are hardy fish that can literally travel on land up to 10 feet to get to the next puddle, but we have bred them for ornamental purposes and they couldn't stand a chance in a tiny puddle now days with their genetics. :(

I agree. I was on a website about Bettas recently, and the said VT were no longer a "desirable" strain. I was thinking, screw that, VT are my favorite! Who cares if their fins are asymmetrical? Oh, and the also said blue iridescence in Red VT was a "flaw". I think it makes them ten times prettier. /rant.

I agree! VT's should be back in the IBC just because they have too many "flaws" doesnt mean you should just kick them out. I think that since there are so many very well experienced breeders, someone should try to perfect them and get them back into the IBC and prove them wrong.

Its fine to be one of the few boys on the site. It doesn't really matter about the gender as long as we all have something in common. :D'

PS- Its coming from a girl.

Ditto on the agree-ing. I never had a veil tail but I really want one I think it should be included as a actual breed because they are just "classic" and I bet someone could breed a better veil tail maybe mixing it with a double and having two very long flowing fins.... *dreaming*

Actually, they already have double-tail veiltails. Look it up, and you should find one. They are pretty cool, but still not my favorite.

@ bettalover2033 - yes that is the double tail / veil tail

Reminds me of my little diva fish..Tex, he has a turquoise body and his fins are red with streaks of turquoise or green in them. He would be very beautiful at my grandma's for x-mas, I think of bringing him sometimes..but I know I can't.
