Wow what an awesome pet smart find! I have never seen any interesting colors at pets art let alone a pink/blue one. Yes purple is a rare color.

we just found a beautiful purple HMPK at petco last night (i almost bought him a few weeks ago, but got a red VT instead. then we popped back in and got him anyway this week!) he's got a nice, beautiful solid purple coloration, and white-trimmed almost-butterfly finnage. same trip we also got a lovely marbled green butterfly SDeT, who's got just a hint of blue and ALMOST pure green. my fiance, the better photographer, is gonna try to take some photos later today, my feeble attempts are here: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=111912

a true purple with no wash is pretty rare, as well as albino.

Yellow, orange, and black are a just uncommon and it really depends on your area. I find blacks all the time, my walmart was getting tons of them. Yellow went through the same faze. I have never seen a truly orange betta so i suppose you could classify it as rare?

if someone could figure out a way to breed calico coloring (as in goldfish) into bettas, those things would probably be the most beautiful animals on the planet.

A lot of people are after specific tail types.. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes.. Many love halfmoons and plakat tail types...

Good form, which is uncommon to be found in pet store bettas. Typically found in well bred bettas, coming from GOOD breeders who breed show quality fish..

Pet store wise people seem to be attracted to solid whites, blacks, etc/ Marbles are also liked by many. Red and blue are dominant traits and therefore more commonly found in bettas, so they are less sought after. veil tails are very common as well, so less people admire their beauty.
