You know... I'd really love to have a Giant VT (even though Giants don't usually live as long). Maybe one day I could do a project line of Giant Veils.. that might be fun to do.. although breeding VT is pretty much a crapshoot as far as shows and standards go. But a big ole VT would be so pretty (Fishy is a testament to that ;)).

LOL I'll put you on the list ;) If I did breed a line like that I'd probably give them away at the cost of shipping simply because there really isn't a market for Veils..then again who knows what could be the trend in the future.

I would probably have to create a foundation of bigger veils.. using large males and females, and then cross later generations with Giants to get the Giant Veil... I'd have to do a lot of genetics researching before I started.

So you guys think he's a giant veil tail? I think he's gorgeous, and actually I love how big he his. I didn't think I would. But he's rapidly stealing my heart away...

How big is he from head to peduncle? (not including tail).. just a rough estimate bc I doubt he'll let you hold a measuring tape up to him LOL. He may just be a big boy.

I'll try to get an estimate sooner or later lol it's no big deal to me. I just don't have a measuring tape with me right now.

My boyfriend is very determined to have a Giant Betta and has no clue that Veils are out so he would love one for sure lol!

And I love researching genetics but sometimes it reminds me I need to go back to college lol
