It's probably not a good idea to breed malformed fish or try to market them as some fad but if they're perfectly healthy there's no reason to go on a mass killing spree because they don't fit perfectly in with the breed markings. Just my 2cents.
I think the betta's quality of life will be significantly diminished if they have deformities such as a bent spine, etc. I have never bred nor do I plan on breeding but just what I've picked up being on the forums for awhile. I don't think I could breed for reasons like this - having to cull. (among other reasons). But it happens all the time. I have a feeling some of the ones that get culled might have had a decent life - depending on what was wrong with the fish. But I would assume the majority would be better off not having to suffer a long life in pain/difficulty swimming, etc.

This is one of my favorites on there right now:



But if i get another betta it's going to be this pathetic looking crowntail at walmart here. He's emaciated in filthy water. His body looks burned and the vast majority of his fins are burned off. However.. he is a super feisty little thing constantly swimming around and flaring and totally responsive to me.. broke my heart, but unfortunately my living situation won't let me get him...

Anyone in KS? :(

ETA: Anyone see the $200 delta? :/

I just bought this HM Betta from the seller called Blimp33. This is my first purchase from Aquabid. Has anyone ever dealt with the transhipper Julie Tran at CA with the website called flowerhornsfromthebeyond.com? I havn't gotten a reply from her yet in an email and she didn't answer when I called. What am I supposed to tell or ask her?

Can someone please help? So confused on how to go through this whole process.

This is the HM I bought from Thailand, sort of an impulse buy but I can't wait until he gets here, he already has his own 5gl tank :)

Not the best lighting but it was love at first sight lol

He reminds me of angel wings :D so pretty!

I love this boy, his anal fin is kinda funky but his coloration is really interesting.
