Burd, I agree, considering it would be stupid to even breed him, there is no way he should cost $150... I'm guessing they called him "apache" because his tail looks like arrows... maybe. Faith called one of her red BF strains apaches.
Calling other people" stupid" is pretty darn rude. I'm pretty sure there are nicer ways to say you don't think a particular fish should be bred.

Boy, that breeder sure thinks the WORLD of their fish. >>
I wonder if they've actually ever sold one of their $100+ fishes for that much or if this is an experiment to see if someone would buy them for that much.

Gotta say, I do love the colors and how they're blocked onto his body.

They must, but they do have some quality fish!

Nowzem, I don't think she was calling you stupid, but the idea of breeding him was, because he is severely mutated, and breeding the strain would cause further mutations that could be life threatening to the fry and possibly even him, it's probably harder for him to swim than others. =(

^ Exactly, out of 100 fry only 10 gets to be healthy and beautiful, therefore they are expensive.

Well, probably, just guessing xD

Still hurt my feelings. :(

Anyways, I don't think I'll pay $100 for any fish any time soon.

Tuesday I will go look at my LFS new betta shipments, but other than that.. dunno, maaaybe I will get a female, not sure yet though.

And yes, those fishes are extremely beautiful but if you think of the process it took to get them to be like that is kinda sad. =C

The blue/black/yellow male from Aquastar is so severely faulted I wouldn't pay $10.00 for him.....I have bought several fish from Aquastar but this is NOT a fish I'd even remotly consider buying/breeding....People need to understand some of the Thai breeders use names for the Bettas to sell to people who don't know anything about Betta breeding.....

That's my 2 cents worth :o)

What's wrong with him? I'm curious, I don't feel like I understand what the breeding standards are for bettas. I think I see some rosetail, which is undesirable from what I hear... he's not a full dragon, obviously, but I find his patterning kind of attractive....
