I still think albinos are rare.

A member here had an albino male she was looking to home with a breeder... I cannot for the life of me recall who that was, unfortunately.

I'd really like to know what became of him.

That member had a white platinum with red eyes. A true albino is completely see through, red eyes, and blind. Ergo not capable of spawning.

Ah! Thank you for explaining!

It was still a pretty cool fish though. Is red eyes not uncommon?

Red eyes + non-albino body is an ocular albino. Still less common than your everyday non-albino black-eyed betta, but nowhere near as rare as a true albino, which lacks pigment in its eyes and everywhere on its body.

I read in an article on Betty Splendens that Black Devil and Black Ice bettas are hard to produce because they don't breed true, and getting them is "luck of the draw", but that article was written in 2005 and I'm sure that more than a few things have changed since then: http://bettysplendens.com/articles/p...articleid=1040

I saw a purple betta out the back of the 'staff only' area of the pet shop when the shop keeper was putting Gorgeous in his plastic bag. The should have put him out the front...
