To measure it and show you that it's a king betta and not just a HMPK. They could always somehow measure the UNDERwater.

Wow, that's so ridiculous! Maybe they meant $100? I don't know anyone that would pay $1k for a fish.

Yeah, I know that they were measuring, but I think it's cruel to take it out of the water.

I honestly don't see how it's that cruel to take it out of the water... it just like netting the fish...

It's also ridiculous that they are asking 1K for it!!! Geez.. the eyes creep my out too. LOL

Yea I saw this and couldnt beleive that they would actually try to sell it for $1,000. Its obvious they think its something special and its the only one so I dont think it was a typo and supposed to be $100. Either way I think $100 would be rediculous for a betta.
