I just recently found out about betta showing and I wanted some help learning how to judge betta fish. I've attached some photos of my boy Alarik to start(in temporary tank). I've been told he is a Double Tail HalfMoon irid multicolor and he has clean conformation I believe.

I'd love to find out how to count rays. I understand that my boy might not be the best, but I'm hoping to work up to breeding showline betta eventually so I'd like to know what to look for and improve upon with the offspring.

I found an article on how to count rays which was really helpful, but I cant seem to figure out how to count them on my boy. I think I want to get the female I breed him to to have very prominent rays so its easier to count, plus it looks prettier to me.

I've been looking through the IBC website for the last couple weeks and I'm still having a hard time navigating it all. It seems like whenever I think I'm gonna find something there, it isn't. I was just looking into the IBC show forms and I realized I needed to find the classes of color and finnage but I couldn't find them for the life of me. I've seen them around before I believe but no idea where. The pdf for the standards was really slow to scroll through on my pc too so that made it more difficult. I wish there was a picture guide on what to look for and what to stay away from if you want to show bettas. That would be really helpful.

Are you allowed to show petstore bettas if they seem to be show quality? I just found 2 really nice bettas that I think could do well at a show.
