Guys: I believe the guys handle is fishLOVER....not fishliver...Heehee...many handles are extremely funny...but fishliver...kinda reminds me of the google ads that accompany aquabid..."kill that duckweed and other pond weeds!"; "want to go flyfishing?"....you know just kinda off :)....my droid's spellchecker and word replacer is ALWAYS doing that!
Anyway...you're looking for failover! See what it changed to now?! fishlover!

I let one similar to that black red devil dragon slip through my grasp once...I still look once in awhile for any relations of his from the breeder...and I still dream and yearn for that boy! It's been 2mos now....:(

Now --- this fish has the x-factor RIGHT??!! Why would somebody sell this on AB!! I mean the fish is a nice fish, but her scales look absolutely horrible!!!! - being sold by an american seller for $10. Who would pay that!!
[/quote]
Some unsuspecting inexperience person would buy her not knowing any different. Then if they bred her, they would have a bunch of horribly scaled Bettas they couldn't or if they figured it out; wouldn't sell. Another example of an X-factor Betta someone is trying to pawn off as special. Anyone remember the "Crocodile" White female some seller was trying to get like $100 for?

People sometimes think that just because it "looks" different, that it's a good fish.. I would love to have one with a couple those colors and such, but it looks very messy.. scales, fins and the coloring on her fins are all off and don't match. If it was much smoother and looked right people would jump all over her.

Sure, toss her into a sorority, people may want her for a pet.. but that is about to the extent of it, imo. Sadness... could of been one heck of an interesting fish if she were a bit cleaner. :(

i would love to have her in my sorority, but not enough to shell out $45 total to include shipping and what not, and definitely wouldn't breed her.

I always love how everyone in America is like $10 for a fish!! Like it is some exorbitant price. $10 here really only gets you some pretty average quality bettas. A male VT is usually around the $7-$10 mark.

I like the colouring on this male

Although I tend to like most of the fancy types by this breeder even if they aren't perfect form wise.

I dont think $10 is over priced for a fish in any way. I think its over priced for this fish.
She's extremely messy and almost looks like she's got some kind of fluff popping out in between her scales.
I wouldnt pay a dime for something like that when I could go get a female without the messy looking scales for $1-4 max.
