Honestly I don't think these deformed fish sell well? Or do they?
I don't get who would want a betta without a tail, or something. That's why we love betta. They have beautiful fins and colours.
People tend to like anything that looks unique. More so when sellers and breeders give cool nicknames to the deformity (pearl eye, shock betta, bullet, ect..). Just like the tattooed and color injected fish.
It sickens me personally. I am sad when I go to petstores and see disabled fish being called something cool and higher priced than normal fish. Like watching the balloon mollies getting knocked over by the normal ones when fed.
Unfortuatly the tail less fish are getting more popular. Now some are trying to make tail less Jack Dempseys. :(
And all I can say about the tail less Blood Parrots is, are they not deformed enough already? Now their tails are taken away? :/
