Ugh Poor boy

I was just looking at the different bettas on AquaBid and I came across this guys fish that he's trying to auction

He's too gorgeous to be treated so poorly. If I had more room I'd happily swoop him up

I can overlook the fins, because sometimes those things happen with bettas. But he is so bloated...poor guy.

He's lovely aside from the fin which looks like fin rot and he is waaay too bloated.

I think we should report him on the unhealthy ones. Its not fair to the bidders that he's selling sick fish.

I agree. That belly is unacceptable. THAT is worse than buying from WalMart IMO... Then he thinks he can get away with 1)Treating fish poorly, 2) Selling sick fish to unsuspecting customers (some people don't know better). I mean seriously, $15 for a betta who is clearly sick?!

This is a shame because by buying the fish it'll encourage the breeder to breed more fish. Thus causing more fish to suffer under his care. Some people just shouldn't breed fish. Period.
