Just a question....

Okay, I just wanted to say( and this will lead to the question) I have a flare for things that are uncommon or rare, especially in animals. Now, don't get me wrong, I take good care of all my pets, and I'm not a collector of any sort, but I just think those things are interesting. So, for my third( and probably last) betta, I wanted to get either a Black Orchid CT, a Marble( any color or tail), or a Triple Butterfly VT. Which one of these would be considered rare or uncommon? Any answers are apriciated!

Black Orchids are less common these days. Marbles are more common, and butterflies are pretty common, imo. x:

What do you mean by "Triple Butterfly VT"?

The other two are not uncommon at all... their rarity lies in whether you see them locally or not. Black orchid CT may be hard to find locally but they're on Aquabid all the time.

I mean his tail is banded with three different colors. That one is specific, his body is turquoise, and his tail is banded with turquoise near the body, red in the middle, and ends with white

That would probably be the most uncommon out of the three you listed.

I'm open to ideas. What do you guys think the rarest tails and colors are?

Rarest tail is a triple tail. You won't find one of those. Any breeder that pops up with one of those is going to keep it to breed and if they did sell it it would cost a fortune. Spade tails are also pretty rare since no one breeds for them now.

Rare colors are reds with no iridescence, dark greens, true purple, chocolates are pretty hard to find.

No. MG is a blue body with yellow fins.

Chocolates have a brown body and yellow/brown fins.

This is a chocolate


This is a Mustard Gas

Oh, I thought they were the same colours, and is it still considered chocolate if the body is blue or green and the fins are still orange?
