yeah :( He barely has a anal fin, and the caudal is just weird. I do love the scales though lol.

There was this one breederI saw a while ago who had a fish with a extreme feathertail(Very short tail because of all the feathering too) and mentioned that if the fish doesn't sell they where going to breed it O.O I can see breeding a slight RT but something that extreme doesn't seem like a good idea.

I don't ever think it is a good idea to breed Feather Tails because they are a great example of bad finnage and horrible genetics. Yes of course they are very pretty, but think about the well being of the fish and how it is suffering to swim in waters with any kind of current. Bettas aren't the best at swimming as it is. So with that much baggage and then making more, is torture to the other fish that are innocent and did nothing to deserve that.

The caudal is what they are calling a 3 DT, but honestly it is just another deformity that is trying to be cruelly brought to the attention of the more quality betta breeders.
Though that IS just my opinion.

There's great Us breeders. Personally, I've only dealt with Martinsmommy (awesome fish) and Basementbettas.
Shipping is what it is, breeders have no control of the costs. Most breeders will ship up to 4 fish in a box. Please be aware that fish need heatpacks and this will be an extra cost so shipping might seem a little higher but there's materials involved that need to be used.

You won't find anything from Martinsmommy listed now... I'm always in the lookout!
Basementbettas has a few copper and blue... And a very nice red female.

Ah, I was about to ask about that. I looked up her feedback, and it said she wasn't a user? I found this seller with decent shipping( 16$ for priority, I believe$) and could be combined up to 7 fish, I think, but I forgot the name :( I know Aquastar is know for selling culls and such, but is he decent on shipping and prices?
