I've been contacting a few breeders in search of a green dragon HMPK. One of them sent me a picture of this guy-
At first I only had the first picture. I couldn't tell if this betta actually had a flat nose, or if it was just a distortion in the glass. I asked him to send another angle of the same fish, and sure enough, the second picture confirms it.
SUCH a pity, as I'm in love with his coloring and would love to make a turquoise green dragon line. I'm wondering if it is a genetic defect that would be passed to offspring, or if it was just an injury from growing up?
