I was wondering about the whole HM "dumbo" thing being a bit much. I know that I've seen halfmoons that can't seem to swim because of their tails being so large and heavy. I can only imagine it'd be like wearing weights.
Yeah I think he tore it on the mesh divider as there was nothing else for him to get caught up in. It took a very long time for his pectoral to grow back and he couldn't swim very well then as he had next to no pectoral on one side, and a very oversized one on the other.

I'm not a fan... I think they are pretty, but as far as confirmation is concerned, those big pectorals seem like a deformity to me.

Thanks! He was a mislabeled deal at Petco

When you look at the wild type bettas, aren't all pet store bettas deformed?

Yep. :P They are, actually!
Petco mislables a LOT of their fish. I got a really nice HMDT for the price of a regular DT. Normally they go for a lot more...

Just traced it back to wear I got it. It was done for a pet auction on gaionline. If Lone Star Bettas of the artist asks me to remove it, I will, otherwise, its non of your business.

It is my business as I am the President of Lone Star Bettas, and it was my friend that drew it specifically for LSB as part of the logo.

The fish is the main part of the Logo, that is the reason I asked you.

Now, I will let my friend know that you are using it and see what he thinks. He is not on this forum.
