I'm going to try and not take that personally or that you meant that against the International Betta Congress. You are intitled to your opinion but if that's how you feel I guess we won't be seeing you or your Bettas at the shows anytime soon.

I didn't intend that at you... Sorry if it came off that way. It's not that I don't respect the ibc as an organization, its just that they dictate the way breeders should do things... Ie no veiltails, black lace, orange dalmation... It's just wrong to do that.

That's ok. I have some of the same feelings. I used to think alot of the Halfmoons looked like petty coats or dainty underthings. They kind of got carried away with the ray branching thing and I'd hate to see the Feathertail/Rosetail X-factor Bettas continue being bred.

One of my favorite males had some humongous finnage but in order to continue the line without over developing the finnage I had to breed him with a female from a smaller finned line.
I'm drooling on my keyboard! Those are beautiful fish, Chard!

I just walked out to the mail box and low and behold, there were my heatpacks I ordered and were sent on Monday. I shouldn't complain about the postal service but it takes 5 days to send a priority (2 to 3 day) package from 200 miles away, and yet I can send an express (next day but not guaranteed to all areas) to Hawaii in two days. Go figure? If Monday isn't some kind of holiday or other he'll be on his way to your address that afternoon. ~ Thanks, Richard
