Is this what they call x-factor?

What is up with this female's scales?

Yea, I thought it looked kind of nice at first. Like lace or something. But upon closer inspection, I realized it has crooked scales. Does that harm the fish? Or does it just mean that she shouldn't be bred?

I don't think it harms the fish but definitely should not be bred.

I definitely wouldn't be paying $25 for her either... but that's my personal opinion.

Not x factor since shes not extreme rt, but yeah she has severely messed up scales on top of a deformed body. This should have been culled when it was spotted

if there was any way they could be talked down, I'm one of those weirdos who would adopt someone like her, but $25 was way too much.
