Who would want to pay for a pair of deformed fish? The beauty of a good betta splendens is in its symmetry. Without a dorsal fin they look completely unbalanced and it ruins the picture for me at least.

I guess that's how some of the types of Goldfish started but I'd hate to see that happen to Bettas. I think about that when I see a short bodied one. That's a deformity that is detrimental to the males wrapping the females so I don't think we'll be seeing balloon Bettas any time soon.

That is just not right I am sorry, it isn't cute nor pretty. They should have been culled or not sold.

Wow those plakats are amazing too bad I don't have $100 to spend and I am not a breeder lol.

The black and yellow plakat would be gorgeous.... If he had his sang dorsal.

They look hunch-backed. :/ I always thought the point of breeding betta's was to have wonderful finnage, colors and personalities.

I mean don't get me wrong, they could be the happiest doggone fish with awesome personalities, but.. I dunno.
