Hot Pink or Fuschia Bettas?

I've seen lots of pictures online of Pink Bettas but have never been able to actually find one. Are they just rare color and snapped up quicker than the hit the water?

Pink is very rare but I have seen the very bright pinks. Not sure how they get that colour. I have a lavender who is pinky purple in some lights which is the closest I've seen to actually being pink.

Gone AWOL....

I figured it was probably going to be rare. I'd love to find a breeding pair and breed for my own someday. I've been looking at so many sites trying to find one but the closest I have come is a very pale pink female.

I had a female that had a light pink body with Burgundy colored fins.

I have a pale pink male(he is also a pineapple) Feather! He is my first betta and still living(well I only had him since November).

I currently own a male betta fish, a female betta fish, two eastern painted turtles, one western painted turtle, one Chinese dwarf hamster, and a whole load of guppies.

any pink you see is usually a dull red, or white with red wash. though, my brother has a betta that looks pink, or pale purple in certain light, but he's probably not TRUE pink...

Searching google, all the really pink betta are made to look like that through lighting.
The closest thing I can think of is the color called Cambodian. You may be able to find something pink enough. I've seen purple but these too are rare.
Come to think of it I can't think of any fish that are pink. :s
