This blue and yellow bicolor HM female is related and one of two girls that I'd like to pair him with: *This is an older pic and she's filled out quite a bit in recent months to look, I think, even better--need to get new pics.


How's this for muchness?

Oh my gawd that boy is a show stopper. Only real flaws I can see is that his anal is a bit too long, and his ventrals I guess could be better, otherwise he's VERY nice form wise

Whoa love that guy! As sharkettelaw1 pointed out, anal is a bit long and vents not perfect. The first dorsal ray looks pretty stubby to me, and the whole dorsal seems to point back instead of forward. Still I adore him - his pattern is stunning.

.

Thanks guys! And yeah, his slightly over-long anal fin is what I see as his biggest flaw so will def be working on that. Ventrals could be a bit better but they're not too terrible, the very first dorsal ray is definitely stubby but all the others are nice and long. My plan is to use him to start a blue/yellow bicolor HM line and bring DT in as well.

If I remember correctly, as long as the dorsal creates a fan then it is not a major flaw. So as is, its only minor..

I know VT's don't have their own category now in the IBC, but how would you critique Shanks #2 if they did?

As far as I know, there aren't any standards for veiltails. Not sure though.

There's not an official VT standard in the US, but there are trial standards for the IBC in Europe. Here's a link to a thread containing a reply from hrutan with more info and helpful links: https://www.bettafish.com/showthread....tail+standards

When you post a reply, click 'go advanced.' Then click on the paper clip, and choose what picture you want.
Tap upload, then send the comment, and you're done!

Would you keep a dog in a small box? Then why would you keep a fish in a bowl?
