i was helping a friend out today. i don't think they knew HMPK dragons existed, so i searched them on Aquabid. i found this one title, that caught my eye. it said "Betta, or Flowerhorn".
well, i knew flowerhorns are those ugly(imo. xD i don't like them) things with the lump on their heads. i thought "not another betta with a fugly tumor on the head!". but.... i saw this poor boy:
that hump.... can't be comfortable. ;A;
i'm not dissing the breeder. but, that boy should have been culled, or sold as a pet. not marked as a 'flowerhorn' and sold for a hundred bux. a boy like that should be discounted, if you're gonna sell him. or rehomed to someone who just wants a pretty fishie and is willing to care for him. i understand, breeders gotta make money, but why sell someone a deformed boy or girl, at a jacked up price, and market it like it's the next big thing?
