    White Double Tail Platinum White Half Mouns

    Changla, how - when I haven't posted in a full year, could I possibly instantly become a moderators worst nightmare? My old irc32.exe self finds that statement extremely satisfying. But let's face it, In the end.... My content is gold

    Hi from Melbourne

    Hi b00f, Dont be put off by the forum's pace, The old grey mare, she ain't what she used to be... but having said that - trawl back through old threads and you've got a genetic gold mine. I thought I might let you know that there's an upcoming Victoria Betta meeting at Clifton Hill on the 27th, you are most welcome to come along - you can even show your fish if you like (love the red/salamander guy!) or you can check out the Facebook page for more details. It's pretty casual, but lots of people will be there, with a table show, talks, food and more. Cheers, Ness

    White Double Tail Platinum White Half Mouns

    so, the spawns are going well ...I've been MIA from the forum - and have logged in on a whim. However BRENTON you maniac - you'll need to hold your horses! I have a longfin DT spawn from these guys I had a PK single tail stream from these guys ...all that remain are a tough as guts DT HM Longfin female that I love. She has no ventrals and makes up for it with attitude. There are a few useful HM's from this - but nothing white and steed-ish for your HMDTPKCT fantasies... sorry! Jump on the VB page and stay tuned to the auction - If you have friends in VB they might proxy bid for you - lets hope there's some lookers in there eh? x PS Link works - in a paralell universe.. I'll get a website one day for the fish. (www.facebook.com/melbournebetta will do for now) Red wash = none, all stayed perfect white gloss teethy whitey goodness.
  8. This was back when I bothered recording my spawns - and I had time for good photos... god bless the freelance lifestyle. I wish I could export all the posts and put them somewhere. Anyway, a side note: I still trawl aquabid and keep my eyes peeled for super blue genetics - there's something pretty special about that matte blue/turq/teal/steel that I think is brilliant.

    Membership Year for IBC Chapters

    Throw cash at me! I'll update a website, write articles and make illustrative diagrams for the website for ya... oh wait.. I do that fo' free.. bugger. Brenton - I get where you're coming from, thats the reason I was a member of BA, it was a polite way to give them some bucks and occasionally get a newsletter or entry into fun raffles/etc. I still like the idea of supporting proactive clubs with membership. Unfortunately (or might I suggest fortunately) Victoria Betta isn't formed like the other Clubs, as it's been explained, we operate under the wing of the ASV... so we don't have a formal structure of President, Secretary of state etc. The benefits of joining would be Finchat! Dazza works hard to get that newsletter out, and it's pretty great - but acts as a very general fishkeeping summary, and often talks about our ASV meets (not the VB ones) AAQ used to be a much more thriving hub and summary, I always treated the meet threads like documentaries so all interstate members got a peek into our beanie boxes to see what sort of fish wanted to pose at the show, as well as what our environment looked and felt like - now I spend more time on the FB page making that information more transparent to more people. I was a bit offline when I heard SA had become a chapter (very cool) is there an established club and membership system for you guys? I'd be keen to hear (: -Ness

    Brillant! I'm going to start digging in my ridiculous archives. Do you want a banner from me for winners (first second and third?) and short listed ?

    unknown male betta

    I actually really like this little fish. He's what I would describe as a wild type plakat (there are several different types of Plakat, so in a class I would probably judge him against the wild pk type standard) Here's an image of the body parts that will get mentioned : He has rounded edges in the caudal, so it's not really a D shape more of a O, this is typical of the wild types. He has a typical Asymmetrical anal fin, which could be a little longer. His dorsal is a nice shape (with the point at the back an acceptable form of dorsal shape - and the ventrals are a little light on. Assuming he's a young fish - his body type is light for Plakat, so lets hope he bulks out at the gym. Otherwise he seems a really lovely little creature, I'm sure he's feisty as hell - he's got that look in his eye (: Nice fish

    I've been off the forum for a few months, but I love coming back to a spawn log that someone's put a lot of effort into. These shots are great - the iPone has done well for you! ...so have the fish! Mum's red wash under the metallic has come through predictably, but you've got that great "Red Devil" effect (black trim) which I secretly really like. Where was dad from? He's a stunner. Well done.

    Fry Size

    Not sure if it's any use to this thread, but in all my spawn logs I include one of those hideous time trackers: http://www.tickerclub.com/ That way as I'm updating the forum I have an automatic sense of exactly how old they are - as these are relative to the time they started, I always mention in the post what the days/weeks/months are of age. I always add the average size in the post too... I did this more and moreso in the later logs. Helps me keep track (not that I've done anything with it since) but the data is there if you want more. -Ness
