Okay, I thought I might be wrong lol. I have no experience with breeding just thought I would say what I've heard.

I believe he is a cellophane marble. You may see colors added or change in time. Most fish have flaws just like most people. The important thing is that you like him. Good looking fish imo.

His first dorsal ray needs to extend more. His topline needs a little work, and IMO his anal fin is short.
DTs tend to have short, stout bodies due to their finnage.

Sorry, award winning, not champion.. talk to Chard.. many of his award winning bettas came from pet store bettas. There is no reason why a pet store betta can not have a "perfect" offspring, as long as the pet store fish is really well developed.

That is one of the criticisms people have made against Chard. I think his fish are beautiful. Other breeders have bred petstore fish.I think Kayla has and I know Dom bred one given to him by a friend. I don't know whatever came of the offspring, though or what his plans for them were.

I say breed what you want.. if you aren't going to show fish, then why does it matter? And if you do want to show, then it is still possible with pet store fish. I have a boy I got from a Petco I plan on breeding.. I'm not worried what others will say/think. I like him, so I'm going to use him.

And *technically* the fish in my avatar who is show quality I did buy from a fish store :)

I agree. There's nothing wrong with it.
