Other ornamental fish

Are there any other fish that have been as far removed from their wild counterparts as bettas and goldfish?

Guppies, platies, mollies...
Bettas, goldfish, and koi are the only ones that have been bred as long as they have and altered as much as they have however.

Almost all pet store fish. -_- I have noticed that, and it saddens me. :(

Oh no, I didn't mean in a sad way. I meant like the fish equivalents of a golden retriever or lop-eared rabbit :)

So bettas, goldfish, and koi are the most domesticated and have been domesticated the longest? That's what I thought...

Yes.. a close second I would say is paradise fish for length of time kept in aquaria (first truly tropical fish brought over to Europe) but they are not altered at all.
