Each female betta sold in the Sapphire shop has a code in its Pet Profile that is meant for one of the four groups below.
In these four groups, are male betta fish. You can pick any male from the code's group, enter the code, and you claim the male. It'll be removed and a download will commence.
Bought a female betta with a code from a group you don't want? You can trade her with someone else for one that has a code from the group you want.
You cannot trade any male you claim below.
You cannot use any code of any female betta you don't own. You're trading the fish, not the codes. I'm not going to be on the lookout but if I see people not playing the special as it should be, I'll just block them from the betta and Sapphire pages til they get themselves a lawyer.
You can trade the female betta after you've used the code, but it has to be for another betta fish. If you only bought a female betta fish to get a male betta fish, you can return or delete the female. No giving to someone else.
FAQ - Can't people cheat and give out their codes?
Maybe at the beginning; Yup. Losers. There IS log data for now, and in the future there will be more security to prevent cheating.
- If I want to keep the fish but not the code, can I give the code away?
- Can I trade the fish with someone, use the codes, and trade them back?
No that's lame. You gotta give up the fish if you don't want the code.
- Can I trade female Dumbo fish from Group 4?
I'll say yes to make it easier to remember "only trade females". Dumbo females won't have codes though, since they're from Group 4.
Group 4 is a little different. Group 4 can only be claimed by rare codes found in the Pet Profile of male bettas from the other groups. That means you can't trade for bettas that have the Group 4 codes, since you can't trade the males that have the rare code. Don't want any in Group 4? Ignore the code.
Groups do restock. If you don't like any in the group your code is for, you could always wait and see what might come up later.
