Grassy Green Bettas

How common are GREEN bettas? I'm not talking about pastel or pale green or dark almost black green. I mean grassy green. I saw this picture on FB, full credit to Toko Betta for this photo, but how common are green bettas like this? Not CT per say, but the shade of green??

Looks photoshopped to me. The lower left of the picture is pink like the betta's iridescence. I have never seen or heard of this before, it's most likely not real.

I agree, looks like a photo manip to me. For whatever reason, certain colors (like green and purple) are just very difficult to achieve through selective breeding, regardless of the species. To answer your question directly, I'd guess that grass-green bettas are either extremely rare or more likely nonexistent.

The greenest betta I've ever seen in real life is my A-tsi-hi but she is really a copper so I don't suppose that is a true green.
