Your fish sounds nice :) I have a pink/purple/blue VT multicolor from the store.
Inbreeding actually is quite popular among breeders I think because it keeps a certain line strong or something. Breeding isn't something I understand. But chances are your fish is just the product of a mill, be it from Asia or not. Specialty breeders will not charge 2.99 nor will they sell them in a petstore.
Maybe put some things in tank to get him interested in other things than "staring"!! lol You can put a mirror to his tank for 2-3 minutes per day, put in a clean floating bottle cap or ping pong ball. You can put some silk or real plants in there, a mug/cave for hiding.
