SO having a crappy day (both amazon and usps are screwing me on 2 separate packages.. really want to scream at them over the phone enough to make customer support go deaf). Feeling a bit down so figured I'd go aquabid perusing, the "Ooo that's pretty!", "Aw I'd love to have him/her." aspect helps distract me from frustrations of life. Since one of my deltas decided to start tail biting I want to avoid looking at long finned fish in favor of plakats instead (I've not seen one manage to nip its own tail).. anyways here's some finds I wanted to share. (sorry for any page stretching)

MUSTARD DUMBO PLAKAT!!


Blue/black orchid plakat female (USA)


Pastel looking plakat male (great spring theme feel to it)


Lavender dumbo (with big white lips *muwah*)


Platinum white, simple but pretty (would be lovely in planted tank with dark green hued plants like mosses)


Did I mention I love mustards?


pretty blue/'green' girl.. would her tail fin classify her as butterfly or rose plakat?


Autumn colored female


Copper dumbo male


very green looking black copper male


had to laugh at this ones name, "dragon gas".. reptile farts?

While I certainly understand the "Lavender" in this fish's description, I must say I'm not so sure where the "Smutty" comes in ;) Perhaps it was meant as "smokey" or something?

Maybe he's a betta porn star? or just auto correct being fail for someone (fails for me quite often).

I was thinking maybe another term for grizzle but that betta doesn't look grizzled //eyebrow raise
I have no clue what that was supposed to mean.
Maybe it was a ploy to get views?
I mean, it obviously worked since it got JustinieBeanie's attention? Lord only knows how many other people have clicked it. I did out of curiosity xD

Smutty can also mean a sort of streaked or soft appearance. I know in art class we'd often reference pictures that had very soft lines as smutty, or smudged (though plenty of jokes were to be had, oh man). No idea if he was going for something like that or not though.

When I saw that listing, I actually looked up the definitions to see how many there were; I've heard it used to mean "blackened" or "sooty", but thought, "He doesn't look black or very sooty". Sure enough, words like blackened, soot,dirt, and grime were in some definitions. However, as you mentioned, I had missed that important word "Smudged"! Based on the few definitions I looked at, it seems that one of the meanings for the word smut itself can be "a (brown) smudge", althought most of the definitions for "smutty" included "smudged with or smudge of" soot, dirt, smoke, etc.

Yes, I'm sure you're right. The seller is referring to coloring, possibly the softer smudged appearance in many places or perhaps the brownish colors, particularly on his face. I had mentioned I'd wondered if they meant smoky and some of the definitions included smoke smudges. I could see describing the colors, especially the brown areas, as smoky or brown smudged- aka smutty. :)
