I'm so glad you didn't! Someone was bidding me up a couple times a day on the black/blue girl and it was getting soo irritating! Lol

DS is dragon scaling, thicker than normal, armor like scales all over the body. His are extending over top of his eyes.

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. So this guy will have the same issue? I bid on him. I thought it made him look cute...shows what I know. Oh well...no worries. I will love him just the same.

Yes, he will go blind. I wouldn't breed him but he still would make a beautiful pet.

the fella that I have (who looks similar to this guy) already has some progression of the opacity (coloring) on his eyes. PM me and I can show you what to keep an eye out for.

Drats..poor guy. Thanks again for answering. I am not a breeder, so not to worry there. Thanks Skewillow for offering help. Do they do ok blind? Is there something to consider when setting up his tank?

they just need time to adjust to losing their sight, Norbert isn't totally blind yet, but his range of vision is becoming more limited.

I would contact the seller and tell him you've changed your mind because of the eye issue and that you don't want a blind Betta. Personally I feel that if people keep buying them that way the sellers have no reason not to keep breeding them that way. I've been breeding Dragons to not have full mask scaling. That way they won't go blind after 6 months. A lot of my Dragons are Monkey faced. You can see the Gold scaling on the body but nothing on the face and head area.

I never have a problem with that sort of thing and I should think other sellers would understand as well. As long as you are upfront with them. When I don't hear back from someone or get jerked around for a couple weeks after they go through and do a but-it-now spree for $100 or $200 worth of my Bettas and don't pay then I'm P.O.ed and just ban them from my auctions. People change their minds or spend their money on something else all the time. Letting the seller know is not the problem, it's not telling them that gets you in dutch.
