Cool what makes a fish 'show quality'?

.___. that's bugged me for a while.

mainly, with Veils. we all adore our Veils, but what.... what does the IBC say is Perfect Veiltail Fins? i have had many veils(currently have 2), and Cup and Purple's fins.... are totally different. Cup has this long, beautiful, almost rectangular tail, while Purple has this amazing, beautiful, nearly heart-shaped tail(only, it doesn't end in a point, but a strait edge). which of my boys, would be "correct", according to the IBC?

main reason i ask? >w> my Perfecting the Veiltail goal that goes with my Orange Dalmatian breding ideas.

Here Is a link to the standards for veiltales. The only problem is that the IBC banned them from shows.

Is there no standard for deltas or are they simply considered 'misfits'? I've been curious about this subject too. Thanks for the link, shinybetta!

I beleive that there is a delta standard, as they used to be one of the most popular variety's before the "Halfmoon Craze". There are more grading guides like the previous link on the linked website.

I don't think the IBC recognizes veiltails.

i heard they were starting to, but i dunno anything about the show world. xD i just know, people are trying to better the veil, i guess as a 'just in case', or 'for when' the IBC does? xD thanks. :p looks like Purple, is nearly perfect, according to that! :D

I heard that you can show veiltails in E1 Form Variations. There is a booklet that details the current standards for show fish. There is no specific category called"veiltails in the US for showing bettas.
