Eh not true. My whites are pure as can be lol.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

All whites get red wash on em as they age. A true rarity would be a true green.

Generally Karen produces nice greens but they generally have other colors. But still nice.

There was a true green CT boy at my new LFS the other day.

Daughter's STILL mad that we didn't grab him. But I have no room!

Whoever is supplying that store is breeding some -really- lovely colours and types. I hope they keep supplying them -- I'll have an 8 gallon free in a week or so...

ETA: I'm actually taking a camera next time.. so I can show off the lovely fish there.

I think, though I am not sure, that Gabe was a rare color? It didn't matter to me though, if he was rare or not, he was my baby until his death.

Gabe is pictured in my avatar, FYI.

But the rarest has to be the albino. Meaning red eyes and white/pigmentless body and fins.

With 20,000 different combos of color and tail type its not normal to find a rare betta.

But now that I remember, albinos are VERY rare. I think less than 20 have been recorded since the 1920s.
