I'd never seen a purple betta before, so I went on google and I found this. Apparently they're very rare.

I have one and he gets more and more purple. He was a lucky find.

I have seen a few purple bettas, most of them weren't solid purple. Once I saw a white plakat with true purple colors on it. I wouldn't say that I see purple bettas a LOT .. but maybe I have seen about 3? I think I saw a purple plakat at Petco the other day when I went on my complaining rampage there about the dead bettas. But he looked more like he was watercolored purple, if you can imagine what I am saying.

current pets: Alejandro Marmalade

Rehomed bettas (because of my move):
Cornelius Buttknuckle, Limoncello Dandy Lion, Cumulus Meriweather, Nimbus McCloud

RIP
Pinkerton Flowers and the fish formerly known as Prine Purplius LeGrape
