Very cool! Congrats! :D Do you have pics of the kinds of Bettas you entered? Could you give us an idea of what they looked like? I imagine you don't have the ones you entered. Btw where do they go after the show?

In previous years I sent my very best bettas to the shows and had them returned to me after the show. With a show every other weekend, my bettas spent more time in the air than in the water and the schedule cost me some of my best fish.

Now I ship #3 &#4 to the show and auction them off after the show to pay expenses. (I keep #1 & #2 home safe to make more bettas) I actually kept the 12 best from each spawn because there are 4 shows and the convention in DFW this june.

The light bodied bi-colors are orange cambodians - white body and orange fins.
the dark bodied bi-colors are my new color (orange chocolates) a dark chocolate body with orange fins. I also entered some pineapples, yellow with black outlines on their body scales like a pineapple.
My opaque winners, I'm sure you've seen, they are a snow white
and for the butterfly class I sent an assortment. (butterfly patern is the fins half one color and half another) One blue body, blue & white fins, one red body, red & black fins, one chocolate body, orange & black fins.
The winning Double-Tail paterened female was a Black marble butterfly with white tipped fins. Half sister to my orange chocolates and mother to my most recent spawn of double-tails.

That's a pretty smart plan. At first I thought you got them shipped back to you, then I thought that maybe it would be too costly. Your bettas sound gorgeous! I'm intrigued by these chocolates. Could you post pictures of the siblings to your winning bettas? Please? :D

This is one of the smaller males, but he is my favorite.
Sorry that the picture is too dark.

Traditionally, choclate bettas have had a rich brown body and yellow fins.

I crossed an orange and chocolage/orange hybred to get this color.
The chocolate body is dominant but the orange fins are recessive.
