Why is this guy "rare"?

Can someone explain to me why this guy is "rare"? what about the mask is rare? Or is the seller just trying to make extra money? He looks a lot like my guy, Wally, same exact everything (only Wally's tail is a little more mangled ) Same weird eyes even!

oops, link might help! http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1266294601

I must be his color, he's the first all white betta I've seen. Most are a yellowy or pinkish color.

I don't see anything "rare" about him.. In fact I think his anal fin is a little long and his eye doesn't look right. I would NOT pay $35 for this fish.

My guy has the same weird eyes... it's like he has some skin around it. i've seen it on several opaque betta pictures... it's why I named my guy waldorf (old man from the muppets)

The aquabid guy looks a lot worse than your Waldorf though.. his eye looks very cloudy.

oh... yeah, i didn't notice that I guess. i thought you were just talking about the weird skin. I guess that guy's eyes are a bit cloudy! i hope for the fish's sake that it was just a smudge on the tank though!

I see tons of bettas that color. Each one say rare, but really they are getting pretty common.

That's a very pretty fish but his eye does look nasty. Poor little guy.

The "rare" would come from it being all white with a mask (like said above all white isn't all that common) but it's really more of a marketing thing. They aren't very "rare" but you don't see them on sale everyday and to a lot of people who haven't seen a betta outside of petco they wouldn't know.


I think I'd pay $35 for it, but only if that included shipping. Add another $40 onto the $35 and there is no way.

I am not going to buy it actually. I was just browsing through AB and saw that one. I have one almost just like it (the picture that I posted above) and I did actually get him at Petco (totally random awesome find!!!). I was just wondering if my guy that I found at petco was "rare" like the one on AB. I only paid $14 dollars for my guy!!

Here's my guy, Wally, again. I think he was a SDT when I got him, but has grow into a HM maybe?
