Well I know the "Holy Grail" bettas are the pure white ones with no discolorations or anything...but I'm not sure how rare they are! Green bettas (I've heard) are pretty rare.

I just spent a few minutes looking for a short video that imntbatman posted a long, long time ago. It was a beautiful veil tale, not one flaw or imperfection, a sparkling pure white gem. Darn, I wish I could find that vid. I've always wondered how much a fish like that would go for.

Here is the betta that I find to be the most beautiful of any I've seen. I would pay alot of money to have a fish just like this one:

YouTube - White Halfmoon Betta ("Milk)

I'd also pay alot of money for this beauty:

(I added a second one, did you see that one? Did an edit after the fact-thanks to iamntbatman for finding them for me. Do you think he'll buy me one for my birthday?? LOL)
