I think he meant 6 months to live. I would buy her for, 5 bucks maybe.

I think that she is worth WAY more money than $5

Since she is on AB and is a HM She would be about $20-$30

But she most likely also has birth defects that any ethical breeder wouldn't be trying to exploit. She's probably blind. That, by itself, should make her less than a normal betta because she's not healthy. Albinism SHOULDN'T be bred for. It's not healthy in fish like it's okay in for other animals. It's like breeding for overly large fins that drag bettas down. It's doesn't better the animal, it harms it. This fish would have a much better life if she'd been born a normal, because then she'd be able to fend for herself at least. As it is, she's stuck in a small tank because her breeder is trying to exploit her birth defects and no one wants to take in a fish who's unhealthy.
It shouldn't be encouraged at all.

I guess thats true. i agree. I think that this breeder should just give the female a good life while she lives it and stop trying to sell her.

He has a 0/0 on aquabid....meaning no one has bought his auctions/he's never sold before....kinda sketchy.

I'll ask Linda when I pick up my fish which Thai breeders are scammers....99% of them are legit.
