We saw this several months back when lilnaugrim bought Quasi- an extremely short bodied betta that would not likely live too long as all its organs had no room to grow. The seller put up more extremely compacted bodied bettas for sale after she bought him.
It may sound cruel to say it should be culled but its better for the breed as a whole.
Thank you for clarifying. Did you feel the itch to click the "buy now" button for her?
Yeah, had I known the seller had so many more, I would have not had bought him. I thought he was an anomaly but alas, I was wrong.
And not for that girl since I have one similar but damn, that "pineapple" girl is gorgeous! However, I can't be sure, but she almost looks like she has velvet on her head or her scales are slightly raised? When I zoomed in on mobile, something is definitely there, I just can't quite tell what it is. But she does look super healthy still so I'm not so sure. Just something strange.
