dumbo standard

Recommended Posts

tentative definition of big ear and dumbo from malaysian breeders forum.

its just really short but thought it was interesting there's also three pictures to help explain what the breeders mean.

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150788985823766&set=o.189679344393346&type=3&theater (body split into thirds)

basically it says that normal fins should be 1/3 of the body length(gills to tail) or less

big ear should be 1/3 to 1/2 roughly and elephant ears are more than this

anyway anyone interested in these bettas what are your opinions on this definition?

i think they are pretty good although i think whilst they are trying to seperate big ear and elephant ear they will just blend in to the one thing

(Well aware there is no IBC standard for these betta's Yet)

The IBC has created a standard
its currently being trialed in area 6 (south east asia)
main points are:

Trial: Large Pectorals Form
Ventral fins: As in other show bettas.
Dorsal fin: As in other show bettas.
Caudal fin: As in other show bettas.
Pectoral Fins: The pectoral fins should be in balance and equal in size.
Big and round is desirable, However, pectoral fins with minor protruding rays are not considered a fault.
The length should extend to 1/2 of the body length.

Top view is strongly recommended

What is meant by 'Top view is strongly recommended'?

Is this a directive to the judges in how to judge this variant or something else?

Yes it means they should physically look at the fish from above as part of judging if possible

this will let them know if the pectorals are even length on both sides as it can be hard to tell from side or front view

if they are even lengths, top and side view can be use to measure pectorals length compared to body length

There is a list of faults for the standard too but I'm not actually sure how much is allowed to be copied ...

Good starting point the info given.

If people want to know more about dumbo faults and the standard better they should go join the ibc.
