I think he's BEAUTIFUL! <3 I LOVE that coloring and he's a Half Moon! Pluss I like the big pectoral fins. I feel bad that it makes it harder for the poor little guy to swim though. =[

I'm a girl! =]

I don't see how it's any different than making the rest of their fins so big that they can't swim well, either. It's just like fancy goldfish, really, as long as they can swim and are kept in an appropriate environment.

Oh, I didn't notice the body on the second one; I was looking at the fins. Still, I consider it the same as fancy goldfish. Some people think fancy goldfish are horrible mutants, so I guess it's up to the individual person. I, for example, like fancy goldfish, but I think Bubble-eyes and Celestials are kinda nasty. :p

Sorry if I repeat any "obvious" info you already know, but I like to cover all the bases, just in case.

My mother likes Black Moors. I like the Orandas, myself. The Bettas just look...odd, IMO.

The difference (as I said in the last Big Ears thread) is that a betta's primary mode of movement is their pectoral fins. Making them heavy and hard to move is going to be MUCH more detrimental than say a HM or VT caudle. Plus if a fish feels weighed down by his caudle he has the option of biting his tail (which is obviously a major problem in HM and VT fish). There is no way (to my knowledge) for a fish to trim down his pectorals.

Oh goodness, yes I agree with 1f2f. But I myself like celestial goldfish. :) their big eyes make them look adorable. but I also like fancy goldfish as well, but I never considered the possibility that their fins would effect their swimming since they're extremely hardy fish.
On the other hand, my betta experience tells me they are more delicate which is why I am a tad worried about this new strand.

Anyone who has had male and female Betta will know that females are very fast. I don't think saying he has a hard time swimming because of the big dumbo fins is cruel. Cruel would also have to be any male with long fins, so any Betta that is not the original wild type, would be cruel. All my males are slow and dart slightly fast for food, but compared to the girls who zip around like Tetra fish, it's just not fair. Though the worst of them would have to be Veil tails and rose tails.
Adding extra lengths to any fins I agree is cruel, but no freaking out please. Unless you own only wilds.
I wouldn't pay more than $20 for any Betta anyway.
