Thumbs down Another Deformed Aquabid Betta...

They call it the 'unicorn betta'.
Like giving a name to it makes it ok...
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1298192533
What is wrong with it, a tumor?

Just like the 'pirate betta' and those severely deformed molly looking Bettas. Since when was it ok to breed disablities as long as you give it a title?

Like the 'twisty cats'. Purposely inbred to make them have useless front legs that curl up onto the cat's back so they have to drag themselves acrossed the floor.

Bettas - Giovanni (HM), Burly (HMPK Giant)
Cats - Drew, Tao, Jakke

What's up with all these sick aquabid breeders lately?

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

maybe they think the fish's colours too good to cull so they slap a name on it and try to sell it.

OR they are just money hungry and could give a damn about the fish's suffering either way the poor fish

Wat. It doesn't even look good. The fish is really pretty though if it didn't have some tumorous lump on its head.

That's disgusting...I can't believe people would purposefully breed cats like this, that's so sick!! I pulled up pictures on a search and couln't believe what they're doing.
And with the betta that is very sad too.

Great colors! But it sucks that he has a tumor.... Although, if it isn't bothering him they don't have to cull him, but they shouldn't sell him for breeding.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!
