Smile How uncommon is yellow on a Betta?

Hey guys,


When i got my betta, Honeycomb, a year ago, he was the only light colored (yellow and somewhat opaque although his pigment is turning to black) betta there. Do any of ya'll know how uncommon this color is?




Thanks!

Happy Mother's Day!

I went to PetSmart yesterday to get my crowntail. Out of about 30 bettas there was one yellow one, but it wasn't even fully yellow. Don't know if that counts.

Yellow is a recessive color in betta fish and it is hard to get because of that. This website is awesome to answer why http://www.bettas-jimsonnier.com/genetics.htm

Yellow has to be bred to red I believe... however it also needs the NR gene (non red). So it's confusing. I'm working on red/orange/and yellow VTs.

I seldom see yellows. I have a yellow pineapple I found at walmart and another one is turning yellow with red dalmation like spots on her fins. I did have a bright yellow VT I found at petco. She was the brightest yellow I have ever seen on a betta.

I just came home with a little yellow VT boy. He was the only yellow out of around thirty bettas at the store. Around here, I wouldn't say that they are common, but they aren't a rarity either. They are lovely, that's for sure!
