Thumbs up Eye color in bettas? Blue? Red? White? Black?

Hey everybody!

I was just curious about the rarity of eye color in bettas. Is it a recessive trait?
My friend has a blue-eyed betta, and these half-moons in this link have all different colored eyes. Look at my posts in the thread to see what colored eyes they have. One has blue, the other black, the other one white, and the final one red.

So, is it uncommon?

From what i have seen, most bettas have their whole eye the color black.

If anybody can post pictures of any bettas with unusual eye colors that would be amazing!!!!!!

Honeycomb's eye color is black.

UPDATE!!!: Honeycomb's yellow is fading, and his pigment is turning to black and an iridescent blue!!! I can't wait to see what he looks like!!! Look in my album for new pictures of him,ad my old betta!!!!

I've never thought about that before, since no one's ever breed for eye color(that I know of) it's probably not very well known whats common or not.

here's some pics showing the eye color of bettas.

red pupil white iris


Silver eyes


color is the same as body


blue/red eyes


Ice blue

Very pretty eyes ! I also always check out the lips since Perseus has light blue lips and the rest of him is Royal Blue. His eyes are white with a brown Iris.

Thats interesting, never thought about that. I will check Honeycomb.:) Honey has black eyes, and his body is yellow and turning black(scales, fins, ...) and a small amount of him is turning iridescent royal blue! I can't wait to see what color he will be in a while....His head is also pale/blackish pink/red colored, it looks as if he is blushing! Check out my album XD

Love your fishes! I am going to look up some colored eyed bettas right now and see if i can find some amazing ones!
