Hehe, I do like the white fish red lips idea, the red would really stand out!
Not a good combo. breeders try to keep red out of white...not saying that it wouldn't be awesome but a lot of breeders wouldn't like it....though it would be awesome :P

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Yeah, I don't know anything about breeding, but I know what I like to see in a fish! They would at least be sought after by people that want a unique pet betta :)

Yeah but then these bettas will hit the market and people will treat them as "accessories". A dolled up betta will just mean more people will buy them and put them in ridiculous little "homes". I can just imagine all the new "barbie tanks" *shudders*.

Unfortunately, most bettas are already treated as accessories, so I don't think a change in color would make things better or worse :/
From that point of view you could even argue that different tail types and such make bettas more likely to be used as accessories, but that's still being bred for...

*sigh* Poor bettas :( Their good looks and easy maintenance compared to other fish will always make them a target for abuse :( :(

Sorry, I didn't mean to go on a rant here

Everything is pretty until you see the lips on that betta , then it just turns comical :P

Metta


The Pali word metta is a multi-significant term meaning loving-kindness, friendliness, goodwill, benevolence, fellowship, amity, concord, inoffensiveness and non-violence. The Pali commentators define metta as the strong wish for the welfare and happiness of others (parahita-parasukha-kamana). http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/a.../wheel365.html
