Well there is nothing wrong with her if you just going to keep her as a pet, but if your breeding that would be a major flaw that would not be overlooked. My opinion is that she is beautiful and very nice with the tail, but the tail should not be bred for.

i adore her. the more i look at her, the more i love her colors. x-X what ARE those colors? i just don't like the price. :< $100 for an un-breedable betta? well..... >.> you COULD breed her, but the fry would just be pets, and not cover the cost of the mother. :/

Another marketing ploy intended to dupe the consumer who isn't educated well enough about Betta form and finnage to know any better.

And for those who are thinking it, no... that is not a spade tail.

I'm not sure that just the extended ray is enough to qualify her as not worthy of being bred but I would sure cull out any fry with the same mutation. I would think that the extended ray is a random mutation or possibly recessive so theirs a low likelihood of it being passed down to the fry.

I don't get why it shouldn't be bred for. I like how it looks, and if it doesn't interfere with her swimming, you could start a new tail type. Why is a crowntail, halfmoon, or veiltale any different than this? They were all formed because of a genetic mutation either directly or indirectly.
