I think the OP's point is that for some folks, a mini betta would be more appealing, the same way folks who love teacup chihuahuas would think my 8 1/2 pound Chi an ungainly abomination...of course, folks who have German shepards may not even consider any chihuahua worth the effort.
I personally don't find giant bettas more appealing, though I might not like mini bettas either. I just tend to get the ones I can't resist.
