I have a special place in my heart for blind fish.

Her eyes are silver/metallic....no white spots on them like I read might be the cause of vision issues....

Hmm, usually cellophanes can be really albino, so if she had red eyes it would make sense.

She's fairly young, from breeder betta afinity on AB...She probably survived because afinity really pampers her fry! :) Well, at least I hope I didn't do anything to make her go blind!

Aww, I bet she was really well cared for then! :) She will probably live a long and happy life in a special tank by herself :) A lot of blind animals live good lives, if a dog, cat, or horse can do well blind, why not a betta?

Taylor - just noticed you said "she WAS really well cared for" ... I hope no one thinks she is dead! She's alive and kicking :) She's in a 3 gallon w/ two silk plants....I'm getting her a betta log & the hole will be the new feeding spot, then making it a NPT. She makes me smile.

She may just be REALLY near sighted...I can't see her living past birth either.
