Wait, I don't mean to throw you off, Yangstah, but I had a power out at my place a week or two ago (I realized when I came home) and the temperature was much below normal for the bettas, they just sat at the bottom. I don't think they'll die, just become much less active. Of course, if the water becomes about to freeze, or really cold, yes.
True greens, purples, dragons arent exactly common, I've never seen a bi-color, cambodians arent very common, same with butterflies, piebalds, and masks.
Of course, my pet store sucks. But I've never seen one of these bettas in real life before (except for dragons.) I see black a lot. The betta you're looking at prob isn't a true black. I bought Augie (my ct) solid red and a day later blue, green, yellow, and black came up on him. Bettas from pet stores almost always color up.
No, females need the same amount of space as males do. And don't breed themm unless you've done research, you could end up with 300 fry and have no where to put them! Research and research and research and research some more if you're looking to breed.
