The dumbo bettas look cool, but also look like they would have a nightmare swimming.

Sweeda- I love the black and white one! reminds me of a zebra mixed with a snow leopard. The first one is pretty stunning too, i like MG with that mellow purple.

Woh, sorry I wasn't calling you stupid! First off, you never said you had plans to breed him. I was giving my honest opinion that it is not a good plan to breed extreme feather/rosetails because the fry will be horribly mutated and deformed and would have to be culled (aka killed). It is in the fish's best interest not to reproduce. Though he would have more difficulty swimming than other less deformed fish, he would make a good pet since he is indeed gorgeous.

I personally do not understand why he costs $150 when I'm sure Aquastar17 knows how the fry will turn out. It also shows that Aquastar does not care that he has to cull hundreds of fish just to have one really nice one, but business is business :/ As a future Vet and lover of all animals big and small, I do indeed think it is stupid to purposefully reproduce things that harm animals.

I am sorry to have offended you.

They have deformed scales, harder times swimming and often in a batch of fry from which they came, the vast majority of them are so deformed that they can't survive (or so says what I've read).

Breeding either rosetails or feathertails has pretty heavy consequences that one has to weigh before and while they're breeding/raising fry. As many have said you need to keep in mind one thing - a fish has to swim! With so much feathering, deforming and health complications, that fish is going to survive. Not live. If it survives, of course.
Sorry, late reply. :P

So rosetail is the only issue? I was just wondering if there was something else that made him undesirable. I've read up on rosetail so I know what the consequences of breeding it are. It's a shame. Some of them are beautiful, but I don't own bettas just to have something beautiful. I own them to have a companion of sorts, so I would probably never encourage breeding of extreme rosetail. (Of course, it does help that bettas are pretty... :B )
