From what I have heard they are averaging 1000. They are a lot harder too breed too.

After Snowy I don't trust a white to stay white. I would never pay anywhere near $1000 for a color that has changed multiple times in my experience. Grant it, Snowy was a pet store betta with no known genetic past, but I no longer trust that color to be stable. XD

Albino is not white it is no to little pigment. There terrible vision makes breeding hard.

Oh....never mind then. I'm used to albino meaning all white with red eyes in the mammal world. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that it's different for fish.

But my initial reply is still true. I wouldn't pay $1000 for a white betta. XD

I think I'm looking at it from the perspective of being a pet owner instead of a breeder. If a breeder wants a pure line of something rare, like albino or pure white, then it wouldn't surprise me if that breeder would willingly pay 2G for a breeding pair.

However, as a pet owner I wouldn't go that far. I don't need a pet fish that is breeding level. I would get a fish from s place like Aquabid or a LFS to garuantee the fish was raised properly from hatching to selling. That makes my cut off about 30 bucks. XD

Albinos do... I have a pure white blind betta and I love him :)

Just a little bit of extra care is needed, some patience, and you have a good friend just like any other betta.

Albinos sometimes can be blind, but they aren't any less of a betta - in fact, normally they run for hundreds of dollars when being sold :) But overall, yes, albinos make excellent pets!

White and Albino are different. Albinos are less hardy and go blind very fast.
