I don't know if I'm allowed to list the breeder, but you can find the poor fish on AB Under the veil tail section. He's listed as Red Cambodian Short Body.

It would probably be all right in this instance to list breeder as all we have done here is look at fish and post our comments/opinions. We are not lying or spreading untruths.

Anyway, I have found listing for the poor fish. I have never bought from this breeder but I almost did once. It seems a surprise to me...his fish are usually good looking. I wonder...is there a real thing as a "short body" or is the breeder "inventing" a new type?

I looked up his listings too. The CTs he has listed seem a bit narrow in the back end to me and there is another that has a dip in his back listed as ready to breed. I wouldn't buy from him after the seeing the two deformed Bettas listed as ready to breed. Yeah I am up late hehe my Betta is being shipped tonight and I can't sleep

I don't look at the CTs very often, but I agree: if there is more than one deformed fish he's selling, I wouldn't buy from him. I do worry that he is attempting to start the new craze...giants, big ears, SHORT BACK shovel nose....sad but I wouldn't doubt that there are some people out there going "oh, he's so cute!"

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...sdt&1354790989 is that the dippy-backed one you were referring to? it's a shame because otherwise that would be a really pretty fish.

We do our fellow members no favors by withholding the names of breeders, either for praise or for criticism. Just my opinion.

Yeah that's the one. Somsak_bettafarm is the sellers name.

AquaBid.com - Item # fwbettasvt1354875972 - Red Cambodian Short Body - Ends: Fri Dec 7 2012 - 04:26:12 AM CDT The pictures don't tell much and well without video how does a buyer even know if he can swim properly?

what?? looks like someone's trying to create a ryukin betta. that poor guy should have been culled a LONG while ago rather than forced to live like that, not to mention i'm sure SOMEONE out there will try to continue that line :(
I've seen some friends trying to breed culls to get new genes.
Kinda sad

I'm usually not a huge fan of yellows, but I love this one. He has some fin damage that the seller says will grow back with time, but they really have him priced to move at $1 plus shipping.

I personally feel like purchasing him just so no one else will for breeding purposes... Or if someone in the states purchased him, I'd buy him just for a pet. Because it be a shame for him to be bred...
