I believe (someone correct me if I'm wrong) that albino bettas are all blind.

XD I know how you feel! I'm the same way! =P Although I don't think I've found 30 yet =/ I need to spend more time window shopping! XD I wish they had a way to sort the results on aquabid by country/continent though. =[ I wanna look at just the sellers that live in the US/Canada not Thailand b/c I KNOW I can't afford a fish from Thailand =[.

IDK if he's albino, I asumed b/c he is solid white w/ beautiful baby blue eyes, I'll find his link and post it...

ETA - these arent him, I guess he was bought sense last night, but they could be his twins. He didn't have such a pink tint to his scales, but the same eye color, and his fins were longer.

That's just a platinum. :) Beautiful!!

Albinos are EXTREMELY rare, and are all blind.

Unhappy Hi

I bought a betta from aquabid from Thailand once. The fish was grey and mostly dead by the time I got it. Thank goodness I had it delivered to my work. I ran to the convenient mart and got new water and put him in a large cup till I got home. He did recover and his color resumed, but honestly, if I was to buy online again, I'd buy from a more local place. The fish was in a a bag of blue water sealed up in a box for two days. I was told it would be here in a day and would be completely safe, as they did this all the time. He lived about 2 yrs. He ended up with a fin problem and it ate him away no matter what I did. I gave up having bettas because it made me sad they died and I could not figure out how to help them. I would clean his water all the time. I love bettas. Any advice out there on care for them would be nice. I'd like to someday maybe try again. I just love all creatures. I don't want to have another one until I know what I'm doing. And I certainly will not be ordering from Thailand's aquabid again. That fish was grey and laying sideways by the time I got him. I was so upset. :(((((
