Exclamation What the heck is this?! o_O

First photo: So-called "short body" betta. Is this fish going to be okay...? o-o Is is even real?!

Second photo: "Nano" betta. Pretty fish. Would be helpful to have something to scale it against. Anyone else ever heard of these?

Both are from Aquabid... I was just browsing around. Strange stuff in there today. :P

It's really a shame, she's beautifully colored....

I keep seeing 'short-bodies' the more I look, but she was the most severe...

Oh I'm not saying yuck about the betta, just the fact that someone is trying to sell it as a "Short Bodied betta" it's like saying a labradoodle is a "rare dog" :P

Wow that poor thing....But the "nano" one is interesting. I wonder if it really stays that small?

Well, we'll probably find out about its real size once the auction ends and the person who wins gets the fish. It started off at 1$ and is now up to 13.75$!!

Anyone notice that with the pictures of the Short Body betta, the 2nd and 3rd pics seem to be on their side.. if they where straighened up.. the betta would be pointing straight down in both. And the other pictures, he seems to be facing down quite a bit.. I bet he has a lot of trouble swimming.
