Standards for VT?

Out of curiosity I know the VT isnt recognized as a show breed but is anyone trying to standardize the breed so that one day they will be shown? I always thought that would be a fun project to undertake....

Personally, after owning a HM, I actually like the VT's more. I am dying to get a plakat though, just to see if my theory is correct lol I'm really not loving the long fins, and I have two HM's on the way lol I wish people would show and breed VT's and make them a breed again, instead of a "mutt".

I feel that VT arent mutts there just not symmetrical which makes them unique but there really are no good VT gene's on the market... to fit that standard... maybe someday I really want to create the perfect vt lol I think they are gorgeous because they are not symmetrical but i still love me my HM's

I love the look of HMs, don't get me wrong. Just my HM had troubles swimming with that big heavy tail lol If I breed, I'll breed HM for those who care about looks, but personally I'd rather my pet Bettas to be VTs.

If I had $5 for every time I heard VT and Mutt.. I'd have 4 new set ups LOL

Lolz the vt is as much of a tail type as a PK or HM. I love my HM I try to not overbreed them so that they can hold their tails. One of mine I got im poor shape from a pet store still hangs his tail down cause its to big :p I wish I could fine a good vt to use I might start with a combtail or something...
