Well, Rosetail is a defomrity.. and does look pretty. But, breeding bettas, most tail types were not technically named, therefore too were deformities of the finnage. However, rosetail is next to impossible to breed to gain healthy fry

I am aiming for the rarely seen in my town colors: yellow (check!) black (had one... poor Madame), baby blue (ooo), dark green, and super white

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

I always check for some rare or uncommon colors. I should have got the white one lol. At my Petco they have a pineapple girl so I may try to get her for my sorority. Are pineapples rare or just uncommon? I will still get her though.

I think if a breed/species/type cannot have healthy babies it is a deformity and should have never of been bred in the first place. I am talking about all animals as well.

I agree, but eh, all well.

And pineapples are more uncommon, than rare. Shiloh is purple o.o with a lovely red too. I would show a pic if..he'd..stay...still!!!

I hate trying to get pictures when fish don't stay still. i want a camera that takes like 8 pictures consecutively so I can get good pics. I still like the pineapple girl lol. Is a fish that has the body color of a cambodian then the fins are clear, but with the right angle the fins are like a neon pink? I will try anf=d get pics up, they won't be clear though.

A picture would be nice. o_o there are cellophone bettas, though most are pretty pale. Voldemort was like that

I have a bright yellow female and a pastel yellow female - fluttershy and caroline. Caroline was transparent when i got her and tiny. I think she was still a baby.

Yellow, white are rare here. Red and blue are the most common. All the cool ones I see are at walmart , petco - not so much

Giant females are rare here as well but I found one at walmart. Sadly she died of columnaris
