Long time lurker, first time posting. I was browsing Aquabid window shopping and I stumbled across this auction. Now I'm no expert on betta's so maybe someone can help me out, but why does this betta cost $1000. Personally I don't see anything remarkable, but again I'm no expert. http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1311704403
There is absolutely no reason for a badly scaled malformed Betta to cost that much. If someone actually buys it, it will be because they think they can breed it to make more "Pearl" Bettas. I've seen them sold as crocodile and pearl scale but they are only bad rose scaled with deformed scaling. Something that most of us would feed to the Oscar!
Looks like it has dropsy to me... like i would be constantly worried about it... ^^; I dont think it is even worth a fraction of what they are trying to sell it for... Others are right, this would have been a cull for me.
