lol.. BeautifulBetta... lol..
but in all seriousnes, come on. The poor little guy. I am not saying the fish isnt bad but the eyes, ouch. Poor boys and girls :( Im sure there are plenty of other 'rare' things out there that are harmful to the fish, people just need to be careful and think of the fish, it may look 'ok' but we honestly have no idea if they're in pain or not. What's the point in risking their health?

rarity is all on you. things like purple is rare, and being bred for now by a member on here. triple tails are rare, copper yellow seems pretty rare..... check Aquabid, see what colors and tail types aren't on there too much.

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?
breeding betta is risky.
plus its a very low chance that either the male or female will not get hurt out of the breeding.
diamond eye
low vision yes but blind no

mutation is a sign of deformity
just because we like it we call it a mutation.
if we don't like it we call it deform.
dt-sb problem
can't cross it back to a dt
without health issue
hm-eat his own fin
heavy fin that it can't swim right
dragon- to much cross you get diamond eye

Curly, the point being you shouldn't breed bad genetics. BLIND even partially so, is bad genetics and should not be passed on. Let alone sold as being "special" with no warning to the person buying it.

Nowadays it seems like a really rare trait would be bettas bred for their strong immune system.

Because this is bugging me so much:

Basically...
Mutation: is a change in DNA sequence causing something unexpected or unnatural, essentially creating a new strain of DNA thus a changed physical characteristic.

Deformity: a defect is when there is a trait that should be active that is not, or vice versa. It's not a change, it's that something isn't working.

Mutations can LEAD to deformities, but they are NOT the same thing with different names.

Mutation call be pass on to the next generation.
Deformity can't.
Yes there a disability mutation.
Which people tend to call it deform.
I don't know who aquastar71 is.
But man don't be dissing on him/her.
