Call me cruel, but the one in the first picture is rather cute to me. Deformed animals have always been special to me.
But I also agree, its cruel how people can treat these guys :(

No, I completely agree with you- I have a soft-spot for the deformed animals- but these breeders were so irresponsible for not culling these poor guys. :(

Nutt! that female I saw on aquabid! I only glanced at the picture so I thought she was at an angle... poor things ),= cheap breeders. Breeders are obviously only breeding for money if they sell some of those poor Bettas.

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

I actually considered the blind male fro my line....but then I saw his eyes and went...NO. I did find a nice delta tail mail at PetCo who has great full mask dragon color without any on his eyes.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

"Turquoise eyes" my butt. I'm not anywhere near an expert on bettas and I can tell those are eyes that are blind or either very scarred. On top of that, he doesn't look like an HM, maybe a VT, but hard to tell from that angle.

I also have a place in my heart for special needs animals. But purposely producing deformed animals is cruel. More so is trying to make a profit off of them.

Bettas - Giovanni (HM), Burly (HMPK Giant).

Heyy, I know the fish without a tail, I saw her Pic when she was still alive about three years ago on another site.

on another note. e.e those poor fishies, they are cute though, other then ones whos eyes are blind and or missing o.o

I have a deformed girl that I found in a petshop and bribed them to give her to me free, she has a badly bent and deformed spine but I love her cause shes super cute <33 Shes been with me for over two years now.
