Albino Betta

I was wondering if anyone else had seen the aquabid auction for the albino betta.
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1289857202

I'm not gunna get it, in part because I doubt its authenticity and also, I don't want to spend 2 grand on a fish that if it is real, will more than likely have lots of health problems and I wouldn't be able to breed anyways.
Your guys' thoughts?

I posted about this a few weeks ago. I doubt anyone is going to buy that fish. For one it has a genetic deformity and it also has horrible fin structure.

It's a real fish, but probably has a lot of health problems. And it being a female doesn't help much, people only pay the big bucks for males :/

Not neccessairly. I'll pay top dollar for a female that has good fins just as I would a male. Problem is that most people selling females don't put up the good ones.

Yeah, it makes me think it was all a scam to get attention. It has clearly gone around the internet well.
