They used to be less common but now there is at least one in the "stock" between the 4 or 5 pet stores at any one time. My mom's fish is half dalmatian so the strain is leaking (if you want to call it that)

I think it depends what stores you have and what sort of bettas they stock. They'd be uncommon at my petsmart, but I've seen them at other stores. I'd say they're somewhere in the middle!


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

Oh that's good to hear! I really like them because they have the furthest markings from a wild betta I can think of and I want them to be around as long as I'm around. And as long as they're in demand then they will hopefully be around...

I just hope people continue to breed those orange Dalmatians because they are my favorite and I love em. I would breed them to keep them going but hats way too much work and money... So I'm just hoping other breeders continue to breed them...
