Exclamation Look at this betta. =O O__O



For sale on Aquabid. Fgegrgtgthr WHY does it have to be so gorgeous, and WHY do they have to be so pricey!? After import and shipping, around $60. I just got two imported last week. I'm hovering over that "buy now" button, but OMG so expensive. -_- But it's so unique looking, crowntail on top, HM on the bottom.

What. To. Do?!?

Dragonscaling over the eyes can reduce or eliminate eyesight.

Is that not an undesirable thing? Why would anyone want to breed fish that are genetically prone to blindness?

Well, he's clearly not completely blind. He's flaring at another fish… which means he can see the other fish. xD

It's the risk you take buying a fish like this. You have to try and breed out the undesirable genetics while keeping the desired ones. That's why betta breeding is so challenging… and addictive. =)

BUT, bad news, guys. Someone beat me to him, he's sold. >_____<
