Hot Pink or Fuschia Bettas?

I've seen lots of pictures online of Pink Bettas but have never been able to actually find one. Are they just rare color and snapped up quicker than the hit the water?

Pink is very rare but I have seen the very bright pinks. Not sure how they get that colour. I have a lavender who is pinky purple in some lights which is the closest I've seen to actually being pink.

I figured it was probably going to be rare. I'd love to find a breeding pair and breed for my own someday. I've been looking at so many sites trying to find one but the closest I have come is a very pale pink female.

any pink you see is usually a dull red, or white with red wash. though, my brother has a betta that looks pink, or pale purple in certain light, but he's probably not TRUE pink...

i wouldn't really say there "rare" it's like green, there isn't a exact green colored betta :P there are pink tinted, or light pink. but i could be wrong

Searching google, all the really pink betta are made to look like that through lighting.
The closest thing I can think of is the color called Cambodian. You may be able to find something pink enough. I've seen purple but these too are rare.
Come to think of it I can't think of any fish that are pink. :s

There are probably some saltwater fish that are. :P They get all the crazy, I-just-spilled-my-fluro-paint-in-my-fishtank colours.
