The betta was in a fight with another male...that explains it.

This breeder has placed in shows several times.

She's a pretty nice person too (I'm on another forum with her).

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.

I think $5 is abit too much for a beatup betta. I'd paid $2, $3 at most.

55 gallon planted tank, starting over!!!( looking crappy, needs a major rescape)

It clearly states in his own words that it got in a fight some how witch is also why hes selling it cheap. There is no reason why they shouldn't grow back. The purson who does buy him is gunna make a huge profit gain back from the gorgus babys he will make.

Live, Laugh, and Love.

Thats the risk youll take with eny fish you get off of aquabid weather its a 100 dollar fish or one for 2 bucks. Hes already selling you a high demand fish for a proffitable price.

It's NOT about how the fish looks! It's about his GENES.
