Butterflies are also quite far from their wild counterparts. What about salamanders or big ears? You surely don't see big ears in the wild. Their big ears also make it harder to swim. Does the betta have to be a VT? HM seems to be the farthest of the wild splendens. Even CTs.
Just get the spazzy bettas. lol
My sister is autistic, and she's the only sibling I have. She pretty much likes red toys, no matter what they are. I understand. (:
Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!
