What do you mean by "hard"? EEs are no more difficult to breed then normal bettas.

Short bodies aren't new. Here's the most extreme example I've seen, and no, this wasn't edited. I'm not even including the photo of her in the spawn tank, but I can post it if you want.

I share veggiegirl's view, there's no need to kill a healthy, fully functioning fish. It should, however, NEVER be bred.

I hope you all didn't think that I meant kill them when I said nip it in the bud, I just meant breeders wouldn't go down that avenue of trying to breed them if they couldn't sell them.

That is freaking scary. But surly such a harsh change on the body will have a dramatic affect on digestion, development, swimming, etc. It certainly wouldn't make a healthy fish in my opinion.

Yeah to me that is not a healthy fish. There's no way such a deformed body couldn't have some negative impact on the internal organs.

I wonder how long that above fish lived for. I don't even know how everything even functions properly in such a small space.

The only organ affected by the shorter body would be the swim bladder, everything else is right under them in the abdomen. In some strains the egg sack would be a little shorter but many of my Crowntail females carry thier eggs low in the abdomen anyway. Not that I think it's ok. I think they look horrible and could only be spawned if the females have the short body. Males with short bodies cannot wrap the female properly so I don't see how a strain of "Balloon" Bettas could even be possible. These are just a few deformed ones that certain breeders are trying make look special only to sell them.

I hope that fish isn't suffering
