deformed fish are not a new breed, they're deformed.

I mean deformed and in warped and blind and bent and stunted.
Things that are only harmful to the fish. Not mutations like double tail, which when bred to extreams is also cruel because of the spinal issues.


Deformed is not the same as mutated.

Over here in New Zealand, any kind of half-moon is partially rare, it seems all the pet shops sell are blue veiltales (a few red ones) and a few crowntails and dragon Bettas :3 I can only ever recall seeing two half-moons EVER in local pet shops (and then the odd auction on Trademe.co.nz :3

Ditto to what Bambi said. Deformities are things that effect the quality of life or health in the fish. Tail types and colors are not deformities. They are mutations. Mutations taken to the extreme can become deformities though.

There is a HUGE difference between Deformity and Mutation. A Mutation is something that wouldn't harm the mental or physical state of the host, whereas a Deformity (ex. having no eyes, no legs, bent spine) would HARM the host. These "diamond eye" bettas being sold on AB are BLIND - Deformity. The "big ears" are a mutation.

just because they flare, doesn't mean they can see that well. my white HMPK would flare. it'd take a while, and he'd have to get up against the glass and figure out if it was his reflection or not, but he'd flare. but, he was still mostly blind. you can't tell me that this fish here, can see well enough to breed without getting hurt:


yeah, it looks pretty cool, but i bet he can barely see. you do NOT want to pass on a trait that causes metallic growth over the eyes. :/ how does that BETTER bettas?
