black short tails

so at a local hardware store, they have a small section of fish and such. they have "short tail" bettas for $5.99 all sorts of colors and what not, and then the have "black short tail" bettas for $19.99, does anyone know why they are priced higher? they people who worked there that i asked could not give me an answer. and i was just wondering why? are black ones more desirable?

The all black ones are a bit hard to find because most solid black females are sterile.

Some stores charge more for rare or unusual colors. A chain store 40 miles from my area gets a shipment of Veiltails in and all the usual Reds and Blues get the regular price and anything odd or different gets priced accordingly.
