:helpsmilie: You should see people reaction when I say I have 9.
Actually most people who know us aren't surprised by numerous fish and tanks. But betta always get them.
No one seems to understand that these fish are awesome.

If it was $10-30 I may consider it, but $250 no way.

This is starting to remind me of the color variations on Cocker Spaniels and Chihuahuas...The rare colors are not a good thing...Lots of health problems....I spent generations protecting the breeds......People always asked big bucks for the rare colors....

I wonder if it is the same with the Bettas????

I second that. Man that is like 2 cases of regular wine.................. ( hey, I am no snob).

I am going to write a story of the plain little betta who wanted a home.....kinda like the Charlie Brown Christmas tress.............

Like the gal said in her post on the Cdn site...are they making "franken fish"???

I think all of our bettas are just as beautiful!!!

Betta people are drooling over the HMS/OHM and HM Plakats: steel, cooper, white/platinums, dragons are big especially patterns with out dark red coloring: like a yellow gold dragon. Solid gold betta. Red is a bad thing right now.
Crown tails seem to be not as popular in the breeders world.

Yea, we enjoyed the IBC Betta Show that we went to, but could really see the difference between the breeder world and us.

It means the tail fin is 180 degrees, like half of the moon.

I can imagine. I'd be bitting my tongue the whole time. okey:
It's half the reason in all my years of cats owning me I haven't ever been to the cat show. I love my cats. I KNOW cats in general don't like being shown off. They do things on their own time. Kinda like those moms with their itty bitty girls in pageants. Forcing them to be a show piece item.
