Those are ranks to rate how good a fish is at fighting, 5 being the highest/best.

That being said, we don't condone betta fighting here.

OK, weird. Thanks for the answer. So a 5 star isn't any better looking? Cause that's how I would rank them. But then again, I don't fight fish.

yea man,
those are the rank(for quality such teeth, scales and fighting style) given by the breeders/resellers....and its varied from breeder to breeder. For a short fins fighters, colours and fins perfection are far from being look at...Players more into its body shape, teeth, scales, aggressiveness, bravery/heart and their fighting style.

Now a regular is a huge misconceptions.... I dont (think) believe any breeder/s try to breed a regular fighter (low quality), they always try to breed the best fighters out of their stock. But sometimes, the spawn has one (or more) undesireable quality (such as a week scale or low stamina etc etc etc), therefore its label or sell as a regular fighter (unfit to fight @ the ring).

I'm glad I know for sure this is related to Betta fighting now. Now to go flag fighters on Aquabid. It's sad that practically all the traditional plakats sold there are being sold for animal cruelty.

Does aquabid even do anything about fighters selling bettas anymore? They used to be quite on top of things and keeping all of them gone, but I've noticed a lot over the past year or so that 95%+ of the bettas in the regular plakat section are fighters.

I'm not sure, maybe there aren't as many people flagging the ads? I didn't know for sure that things like "5 star" meant fighting; I thought it was in regards to breeding overseas. I only knew to look out for sayings such as "thick scales/sharp teeth" so I failed the flag the less obvious ads with the ratings that didn't mention fighting in a more obvious manner.

Perhaps. I dunno, it just seems like a couple of years ago I almost never saw any fighter ads, yet now it is nearly all I see in the traditional pk section =/

it really upsets me to see so many fighters being sold on Aquabid. i love plakats, ever since i got Lulu, and would love a male. but, all i ever see are fighters, and i really don't wanna buy and support a fighter....
