Talking Saint Patrick's Day Contest

This is a contest for all green bettas, any type! If your betta has green as a big part of its coloring, you can enter it!

This is not an official BettaFish.com contest. It has mod approval.

The contest will begin Monday, February 17th at 8 a.m. and end Monday, March 17th at 8 p.m.
Any fish entered before the start of the contest will not count unless submitted again after the start of the contest.

The winners will be chosen by the judges (myself, CosmoTheCutie, and Reagan) and posted the next day.
The three top winners (gold, silver, and bronze sort of) will win a drawing of their winning fish.
I look forward to seeing the green fish out there!

Good luck!

Some say Alduin is Akatosh, some say Ra'vaari is a Liar. Don't you believe either of those things.

How about Turquoise fish, do they count? They are blue under bulbs but green-ish in things like sunlight or ambient lighting.

Yes, I think that would be alright, as long as we can see their green-ish-ness on the picture .

That would explain why I have never seen one in person.
Yeah it is, turquoise is pretty much as close as it gets to green, although some are more "green" than others. Colors work in layers and bettas, I don't believe are able to get the green pigment or something like that. But as for the layers it starts with blue on the top with the thickest coating then black, red and yellow; this is why most yellow fish are almost see-through because they don't have many layers of color on them like a Blue fish does. :)
