VTs are not exactly show fish. If people are willing to work to make a line then maybe the IBC will draw up some standards.

The male has great form. Perhaps his flaw would be the rays are rather wavy at the end. But he looks more of a spade a great specimen of VT. Color wise, the red isn't too bad and he should throw some solid blue fry.

The female could be better. But as MrV said, it's not too bad to mention. IMO you should breed them and work on your own line of VT.

Thank you all for your inputs, it is greatly appreciated. I guess that I will go along with breeding them. The comments on the male Betta are very surprising as he is from Walmart.

As long as you know what to look for, pet store bettas are OK. The problem would be not knowing their genetic background including if there were any defects in their line in the last few generations. Remember to look at IBC form standards before shopping.

Thank you! I am aware that the genetics are almost unknown and who knows, maybe there is a pretty recessive gene behind on of hem

If you breed, make sure to do a spawn log. ;)
