Which domestic betta color looks the least like a wild splenden or imbellis?

What is your opinion? Out of any color variety of betta you can think of...

5G - 1 betta: orange dalmatian VT male "Ty"
29G - 1 orange fantail goldfish "Goldeen"

Well a wild has that sorta blueish red color, and they are very dark, so I have to go with platinum white.

I agree with that! Are there any other you can think of that you think are still very different?

Yeah white would probably be the least natural colour. Anything pale is going to make you stick out like a sore thumb even in heavily stained water.

My wuole point of asking this is that when I get my next betta, I want it to be as domestic looking as possible, and veiltail. So can we think of maybe some more common ones that I would be able to find at petsmart?

Well VTs look pretty domesticated anyway. I think anything pale and perhaps anything marbled would be the least 'wild' looking bettas you could pick.

Yeah VTs look very "ornamental" lol. But not only do I want that, I want a color thats as far from the wild ones as possible...So by pale you mean white, flesh colored, yellow, and orange?

Well I would assume most white animals tend to be the first to get eaten/killed in the wild because they stand out.

Wild betta colours tend to be red, darker shades of blue/black and shades of copper/brown.

Anything that is on the opposite end of the spectrum to these are going to be the least natural looking colours.

It seems an unusual request, so was just wondering why you wanted the most domestic looking betta you could find?
