What were the pictures in reference to? If the bettas died naturally or were humanely euthanized it shouldn't be much of a problem. Too bad about that yellow HMPK.. he was a looker.

Being killed is one thing. Being natural is another.

There's always going to be something upsetting. Let's not even get started with rats...

If these bettas died of natural causes, and then were measured, that's fine. But they still look pretty young to me...

i put in giant betta and this is what came up and that yellow HMPK looked really healthy and was obviously gonna be measured. the blue one looked already dead because when they die i always seem to see my betta with clamped fins i dont know if thats for all?

No, I've had dead bettas with fins splayed out. The blue one looks a little young...

I googled the first one and the breeder breeds Giants. It looks to me like he anesthetizes his fish and measures them. Experienced breeders will anesthetize fish to trim fins (if they get damaged) so I wouldn't be surprised if they did the same to measure them.

ETA.. the second picture is from a Thai forum that I can't read and don't feel like translating. It seems that fish is a fighter and may very well be dead.

Well, science isn't always "nice" to the animals they work with, but knowing more about them always helps the ones we are "nice" to.

Sorry, I study environmental science, and we went spent some time in Duke marine labs to get some samples. We had to kill a lot of fish. But, as long as you know what you're doing, you don't even have to kill the fish or even make them taht uncomfortable to take a picture like these. You just anesthetize them, keep them moist, and get the pic. Lots of biologists do it, I'm sure breeders could too.
