It seems an unusual request, so was just wondering why you wanted the most domestic looking betta you could find?
Well, I am (most likely) autistic (undiagnosed), and my special interest is pets! :) (my favorite pet being the betta :)) and being autistic means that my brain makes strict rules within my special interest, and one of the rules is that the pet has to be signifigantly different from his wild counterpart. For example, I like my terrier mix, who has floppy ears and a curly tail, I likr fantail goldfish, black and white cats, and veiltail bettas that are _____ color. The only thing is I would like to know of a betta color that is as far from a wild as possible but still not too hard to find at the store (maybe yellow or orange?) so that I can feel secure that I will be able to find one when I need to. I don't really like whites though, because they tend to marble out on people, and I don't like marbles because I just don't like them changing colors...

Sorry for the rambling....Does that all make sense?

That makes sense. Orange and yellow are pretty far from wild.

Yes. That might just be the flash or something. Orange dalmation is pretty far from wild.

Butterflies are also quite far from their wild counterparts. What about salamanders or big ears? You surely don't see big ears in the wild. Their big ears also make it harder to swim. Does the betta have to be a VT? HM seems to be the farthest of the wild splendens. Even CTs.

Just get the spazzy bettas. lol

My sister is autistic, and she's the only sibling I have. She pretty much likes red toys, no matter what they are. I understand. (:

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I guess I'm a little confused myself as to why it confuses and upsets you to see a wild splendens?

This offers you what they look like in the wild, so now you can decide what' you feel is the farthest from it. I agree that EE's are very far from wild bettas, and something like a salamander too. ^_^

What confused me is that every other picture or video I have seen of a wild splenden had a dark body....But then the one in the video I linked has a pale looking body!

I think VTs and CTs have the least wild looking tails. I wouldn't get a EE because it looks like it's very hard to swim like that and I feel bad for them :(

I get the red toy thing. That sounds like something I would have done when I was a kid. How old is your sister?
