I asked the breeder if the fish is blind or partially blind and he swears its not. I asked for a replacement if the fish is
indeed blind so I think I have my bases covered. The breeder is well known and many top breeders buy from him so ill trust him :) thanks for pointing that out BTW I forgot about dragon scaling on the eyes causing blindness.

Oh I think you are right that it does cover some of the eyes but I think it may just be the top of the eye. We shall see!

if it does, imo, that'd rule him out of breeding. :I don't wanna continue on with a line who has such thick dragon scaling. x-x i've always been told that even partial covering like that rules a betta out. .3.

either way, he's lovely. as i said, i love the first one most. :3

Naw I'll still breed him. I'll just choose an f1 spawn without the scaling over the eyes. His form is to good to not breed him, I am just glad I didn't grab the sibling sister her offered. I have some young copper females in the grow out that will go great with him and they are metallic not dragon scale, so the dragon scale won't be thick enough to create that effect. (in theory) lol

We shall see!

I sure hope so...this white male is super skinny and lethargic. I got him to eat an artisan pellet though so I guess that's a good sign. He may have a swim bladder issue as he has to work really hard to swim to the surface and then he just drops to the bottom.

I sure hope it's just stress from shipping and he comes out of it. Everyone else is fat and happy .
