I picked up a really pretty VT boy the other day - he's got neon purple colouring on his body and bright, almost magenta fins. I'm calling his colour purple ... but there's no such thing is there? I need to post pics of him :)

Yes, there are true purple betta fish, and true green. They're uncommon, though. Apparently true green VT used to be more common (back in the 70's), but has largely died out, now. People hypothesize that this is due to the inbreeding required to create the HM lines. There's a project underway to resurrect it. Keep your eyes peeled, maybe in a few years we'll see more of them.

Chard56 breeds purple bettas, and they are beautiful!

I saw this pretty boy at the LPS today. So handsome! Pity I don't have room for more.
