Hi friends,

Just drooling at some of the nice betta on AB.. and this one caught my eye.

I'm fairly new to Bettas, so I'd like to have some of you well seasoned folks have a look and tell me some flaws / critique this betta.. I would just like to know what is a good representation of the breed :) I personally like how the fins are outlined in a blueish white, and the body color as well.. Maybe a flaw I see would be some of the blue tinge on the caudal fin?? hehe

My jaw dropped when I saw that too!! At first I thought it was a typo but when I saw the BIN at 1500 I figured it wasn't!

Hi dc2die4. The flaws that I (not a breeder) notice on that guy is that his tail spread is too big, going over 180deg and arching over his back. His anal and dorsal fins are also longer than his tail. Hopefully a breeder or IBC member will be able to tell you more.

Just checked out Catw0man's photos, and now there is drool on my keyboard.

Hey hey! What a gorgeous fish! Please don't take this critiquing as a reason not to get the fish. Every fish has it's flaws. (:

You're on the right track with the blue tint. That would be a bit of a flaw, as it isn't in the other fins as well. It looks like he has a bit of butterfly patterning going on. A clear butterfly pattern will have a 50/50 of color and white outline on the fins. I would want to know what is going on with his ventrals. Is that just the angle in the picture? Looks odd. I would ask for another picture, with a clearer shot of the ventrals. Short/stubby ventrals or no ventrals at all are a sign of rose tailing in future fry. The anal and dorsal are longer. In a halfmoon splended, you want a near-perfect 180* caudal with the anal and dorsal not going any longer than the first and last rays of the caudal.

I hope this helps! I'm not a professional, but I've been trying to get my breeding started so I've had to read up on a ton of stuff regarding what to/not to look for. (:

Hm, auction is already closed, and he was sold.

Edited to add: And GUESS WHO GOT HIM?.... Catw0man!

(I think Catw0man needs to change her name to Bettaw0man!)
Sorry, after I posted his pic, I started thinking about him more and more....lol....and my twitchy fingers accidentally did a BIN.....I guess I'll find out in person if he's really that brightly coloured!!! :)
