Betta with split anal fin ?

So, i really like this one betta on ebay..

But its anal fin has a large split or ^ in it. Are they born like this or is it from biting?

I dont know if i can paste the url here or not.

Anal fin

Silly code is taking out my spaces.. hmm i think its &space to keep it but i dont rem now, lol.

Its a fan tail. Is the big inverted v in the anal supposed to be there? or is it birth defect?

no, the split is in the anal fin, like in the beautiful drawing lol.

I really want to purchase this fish, but i dont like that big inverted V at all. If it will grow back good to go, else if its from birth, then Ill pass it by. Its not ugly, its just that my eye goes to it all the time. Ive been looking at it for 3 days, and havent become used to it =(

Usually anal fin splits like that will heal but it will take quite some time because of how often they use it.

Be a master of water and the fish will follow
