Betta dalmatien are not hard to find if you know where to look for them. I found 2 of them, one is black orange dalmatien and the other one is orange butterfly. Look like both of them are on hold and sold already.
Here are their links.

Thanks bettarainbow! I think the hardest part is finding a Dalmatian that hasn't been already snatched up. :P

you'll have to hunt aquabid, if you want an HM or HMPK. otherwise, check pet stores, they often have veils. when i finally have the ability to breed bettas, that's where i'm gonna hunt. a pair of HMs on aquabid, and a male veil at the pet store.

I would recommend trying to spawn for a dal gene if you havent before, considering it's so fickle. You might get 3 dals for every 50-100 fry, if you've done everything right.

Dals arent really "rare" nor "undesirable", just uncommon. I got a deep orange dal from walmart.

I think that says something to their rarity.

their rarity seem to come and go. about 6 months ago, the pet store i go to had about 6 of them. that was the first time in nearly 5 years that i'd seen them there, and i haven't seen them since. my walmart had only the pineapple dals, and that was 2 out of... maybe... 20 total bettas?

it's a hard thing to breed for, maybe, but doesn't mean you shouldn't try. x: i've been researching it for a while now, but it's not something everyone tries for, like butterfly or dragon, so there's no one who says "you gotta breed this to this, to get it" like with the more common types. x:

Yea, it seems like everyone is focusing more on dragons and butterflies now; the Dalmatian isn't as 'rad' as it used to be. Doesn't make me like it any less though!

I just got back from petsmart.... NO females at all :(
Still on th prowl for an orange female or a cellophane.... If I breed my new boy and my potential girls, I'll breed for dals, crossing back the most likely dal offspring with the father...

I am breeding dalmatien, that is why i have so many males. Just in case your fox dont know, if you put a male dalm with a female dalm, you are not going to get dalm.
To get dalm. the male gene need to be 100% dalm + a full solid orange female then you will get dalm or a solid orange male + a female with gene 100% dalm = dalm.
I tried already and has not that much success until i asked the breeder for helps. This is not my advices but breeder advices.
I disagree with few members from this forum, any color with dalm is rare to find and that is why when you find some, they are so expensive.
