    Is that an actual breed..'Flowerhorn'.. or did they just make that up.?!?!
    They did say it was 'unseen'..

    I'm fairly certain that is a mutation...and not a good one at that!

    Definitely looks like a tumor. That poor betta.
    I can't believe that seller would try to pass it off as a "flowerhorn" and then someone actually bought into it!! ugh.... :crazy:
    How on earth anyone could look at that and not see "THIS IS A TUMOR" written all over that bump is beyond me.

    tumor, mutation, whatever it is.. it's still despicable that someone would try to pass it off as something GOOD and that someone actually bought into it!
    That would be like someone putting a betta up there with a bent spine and claiming "New S shaped betta! Very rare!" or some such mess..... :crazy:
