It's kind of weird that red and blue bettas are placed as "mutts". It is like insulting where they come from (Thailand). They usually have white in them and that's the exact colors of their flag.
O-o

I think you've all misunderstood. "Mutts" are uneven/unequal fin forms (eg. CT are suppose to have equal ray lengths) AND OR with a color mixture that's not harmonious (more of an opinion). So VT's are not mutts. They are a specific fin type.
Young VT usually have an oval - square tail shape. As they get older, their tail will curve downwards. These are not mutts.

Some individuals may have a deformity - curled fins. Even the best pair of the same tail type may produce offspring with this deformity. And it is apparent only when the individual fish is fully developed.
A once sick betta may have clamped fins which sometimes can't open as it should when it is better or at least needs a long time to redevelop its fins.
These are not mutts.

In short, the bettas posted, IMO, are not mutts. They are simply several varieties of VT.
