Yea, thats all they sell here are VTs as far as I know. I had to go to wal-mart to find a CT. I've never seen any of the other types.

Sure I would love it if you could :) The pet stores around me carry a lot of vt but none that fit that description and if I'm going to get another fish he is going to have to be perfect for breeding.
Fightergirl: yeah I love that story ! its so cute it makes me think that the vt could make a come back and be a respected breed. Not that the vt is unloved just not recognized.

Lol I love how it proves how resilient even show fish are.
And I would love to my problem is the article standards arent what I like... I mean I think that the anal and dorsal should accentuate the tail more and connect to it looks like one big long swoop instead of being so choppy... I saw a VT like this only once and I loved him gah. Idk I think the VT could be made to look a little more graceful.

A lot of people talk big about resurrecting the VT so to speak but most times thats all it is.. talk. To truly bring VT back into popularity there would have to be enough interest in them and there just isn't in the breeding/show world.

VT can be shown.. the problem is today's standards are written for symmetrical fish and the VT is asymmetrical. Again.. no one is going to change standards until enough interest is generated.
