Yes, often sibling or closely related pairs are breed. Not just in bettas, but most show animals and plants. It keeps the line stronger. If done over time it could make them more susceptible to disease or deformities, but that would take many generations.

The only deformity I've encountered is a few bent spines, but fancy bettas have different requirements than mutts, they cant stand the conditions the mutts can.

Some swim weird, others just have a bent spine, they are prone to swim bladder disorder but just like all bettas are prone to other diseases.
