Put up pics of the fighters

I think it's going to be a couple of days before anyone starts posting photos. Many club members put in four 18 odd hour days setting up and running the show going to work then working up at Caboolture during the evenings.

Hopefully forum member Betta posts some of his stunning photos over the next week. Unfortunately the wilds don't show their true colours or personalities during the show as they are stressed out by the amount of activity going on around them, and the rather sparse jars they are displayed in. Fancy bettas are bred and "trained" for shows, wilds are not.

I knew I liked it for a reason lol what was the mustard gas like?

It was one of my favourites there too.

Check out the Betta Australis FB page, most of the stunning shots have been posted there. I'll try & get some more up later but I won't be doing all of them :mrgreen:

I like the 2nd pic above the best of show. Did it get marked down a little for the blue tinge to the fins? Or is that blue light reflection?

Bettas are divided in to four main IBC Classes, Halfmoons, Double Tails, Crown Tails and Plakats. In each Class of bettas are divided into colour or pattern Divisions. When judging a Division in a Class, form and finage are what the judges are looking at just as much as colour or pattern. Many fish are knocked out pretty quick because of finage or form faults.

The mustard gas Plakat below is a good example for a fish that would be knocked out early. The middle ray of the Dorsal fin does not extend fully so the Dorsal fin is uneven. It does not have an even curvature to it. The fourth ray of the Caudal fin has a kink in it's lower branch, so the caudal fin does not have an even curvature to it either. Nor does the caudal fin extend to a full D shape at the top, but this might just be because it's not fully extended. The Anal fin has a small split in it, and it does not extend down in as much as it should to a fine point. The RBOD above is a very good example of a show Plakat.

I find it interesting that this years best of show is very similar to last years reserve best of show, but from different breeders. Very similar colours and pattern.
