Read what the bettas are supposedly fed and about the water. I remember one of this guys auctions said they were fed some type of vegetable for lots of ruf***e o.o. Is this a joke or am I missing something?

It's gotta be a joke. Beef and no water conditioner? What breeder would possibly think that was actually appropriate for the fish?

I heard that several breeders feed their fish beef heart acutally. It's the raw NY water I'd be concerned about.

I've heard that New York's water is the best in the nation. BUT, if you have old pipes then it's compromised. So I understand them not using conditioner, there is probably little to no need if they live in a new building.

The food, I don't know about that.

City water is city water though and is usually treated with things not great for fish - that was my concern. XD

RAW NY water? Maybe someone should send them a message asking some questions. It's almost like they are saying this is a good thing.... I mean you can't get past poisonous chlorine. What if some newby fish people are reading this? Some poor fish might die :(

I don't use conditioner. It's not needed here, since we've got very clean water. If we don't know his predicament, how can we judge? His fish looks fine and healthy, so why get upset about a situation we know nothing about?
