As far as genetics yeah we are messing with fish/animal genetics all the time. Right or wrong I donít see it ending. Thereís not much natural left in anything these days.
I think they are kinda ugly and so unnatural looking, I think they are overpriced. I donít know how popular they will be. I donít know how many people besides myself are thinking hey Iím gonna get a betta for Valentineís Day LoL...Eh I sort of want to ďrescueĒ one if you will. I have a feeling many will die on the shelves like other bettas but maybe even more so because they are strange and expensive . Iím going to go to my PetSmart today because I am interested to see how many they still have. I will probably buy one and name it alien or zombie or something like that.
Saw them in Petco Wednesday night while grabbing another hospital critter keeper. My personal opinion, they do not look appealing at all to me, but kids will likely love them.
