I have a dragon plakat with eyes like this; I got him at a petstore. He can see fine, though.

My current line is of the same color, not as heavy of a mettalic, much better in the fins and definately not the eye problem.

This reminds me of a pair of white bettas that sold for $200 on AB. They had amazing color but...well....crappy fins. Any IBC member, dedicated breeder, or just a plain old betta lover can tell this fish should not be sold. I like his fins (not the anal) and the color but the dragon scaling isn't even (major fault) and of course the anal fin is just BLECK!!

i said it on UB, and i'll say it again, he isn't anything special. sure, he looks cool, with his amazing blue dragon scales and deep red finnage, but his anal fin is wonky, and his eyes are horrid. the part not covered in that strange shine's a stunning blue, but he's either blind, or going blind. :/ not something a breeder wants at all. neat pet, though.

He's probably just has this weird blindness :(. It saddens me that people try to make money off of abnormal fish.

Most breeders cull defaults like this, not charge hundreds of dollars for a result of poor breeding. "Diamond eyed Betta! Certain to give you plenty of deformed fry!"

Well... if you have a very ugly, and very lonely female...
hey, everyone needs love lol

seriously, deformities allways happen when you breed for extreme traits, look at dogs. Hopefully this will be baught as a pet, and not a breeder.

edit, also its kinda funny it started as " omg look how awesome this is" to " ew what a freak"
