my new betta family member curry

i went to this mom and pop type shop after work last night just to look and i found this stunning baby pink vt male imported from asia i was assuming they were gonna charge like 5-6 for him because he was so colorful and stunning but he was only 2.99 .... i call him my special fish because he likes to stare at walls i mean he swims around and stuff but he stares at the wall for like 5 mins does anyone else have a fish like this?

I don't have one that stares, I have one that flares. Like, at everything. And then tries to intimidate it, whatever *it* is at the moment, by body swishing it.

Your fish sounds lovely, and that was a great price!

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.
