I do know that the purple in copper is only expressed in the right lighting, but I have seen a evenly colored purple/copper. He was at petco which got me into thinking about purples he looked very similar to the fish above only without the red. I believe the the crosses I listed will still yeild some beatiful fry even if they are not purple. Thanks everybody for the info so far!<3 1fish2fish are you talking about the one bred by Minburi betta? Do you know if this person still breeds, or if he has a website? I have not been able to find anything on him.
On a side note since I will be working with mg , I have a petstore betta who is a mg with minimal yellow on her anal fin. Her ventrals are red I thought that the nr1 surpressed all red on the body. I have had her for about 25 days with no color change of any kind. She is a ct though I dont see how that would have anything to do with it.
