Finding a Green Betta Fish

Due to upcoming changes in my life, I have decided not to buy another Betta until I have settled into where I am going. HOWEVER, I have made a deal with myself that if I ever see a green Betta at the store I will buy him on the spot. With that being said, how hard is it to find a green Betta, particularly a Crowntail?

If you want a solid green boy, pretty freakin' hard- they're very uncommon. However, if you are fine with a fish that has a bit of green in it (there are many bettas that are blue w/ areas of green on them) that won't be a challenge.

True green and purple bettas are probably the rarest, out of any tail type. However, they're a lot of beautiful turquoise bettas that have a green-ish tint. Don't give up, you may find a true green betta, although they are extremely rare

One 70.G Cichlid Tank-2 Parrotfish, 1 Red Bay Snook, 1 Jack Dempsy, 2 Mayan Cichlids, and 1 Spotted Catfish
1.5 Gallon tank with male butterfly halfmoon-Charlie and 1 mystery snail
10 Gallon tank with female veiltale- Lulu and 2 Mystery Snails
3.5 Nano Saltwater Tank with yellow goby-Buttercup, 3 red leg cortez crabs, 2 nassarius snails, 3 hidden cup corals
One misfit jack russel-rat terrier mix-Ginger

I seen a green King Betta, but my interests lie with Crowntails. I work at Walmart and we get new Bettas every Thursday, but rarely anything other than dark blue Crowntails. The fanciest one I've seen thus far was a pink Betta with purple edged fins... I thought it would sell first BUT it sold 3rd to last... I should have bought it for my daughter.

I just checked out the Aquabid website, and while I didn't see any green CTs, those black ones sure do look wicked

I'm new here so I wouldn't have noticed the PM if you hadn't informed me. I agree with you on that last link; it is one fine Betta.
