Weird looking female?

Her spine is bent badly.. She should've been a cull. I think this would scar her life until the end. :\ I feel bad for her, people shouldn't breed if they don't know how it works.

She has a very poor topline and what looks like bad scaling down near her caudal. Definitely a fish that should have been culled pretty early on.

WOW...maybe people should be warned about this fish, I would hate for someone JUST getting into breeding buying her ans wasting so much cash on such a bad fish. They didn't even mention she has poor condition. It's pretty much theft what that seller is doing.

New breeder it looks like but they need to take Betta 101. For $20 I can get a better quality Betta with the same color from Thailand. I understand how hard it can be to cull but at least sell her as a pet only. By no means am I that great at culling. I have a month old Danio with a bent spine I should cull. My hubby got mad when I mentioned culling him so we decide to keep him so long as it doesn't affect his health. He swims well though and eats like a champ.

I saw that fish a few times now. She's been up on Aquabid for a while. Poor thing... I also seen sellers put "short body" in caps followed by exclamation points in the auction titles. Like a short body is actually something you should jump at the chance to buy.
