hey aren't very rare in america
I disagree. I find yellow bettas - any kind of yellow - to be rare.
I found 1 at a petco in Alaska and one at a walmart in New York. Most are red or blue VT's.

He looks like he is a grizzled ( I think thats what they call the coloring on his head) pinapple.

This is the one from Walmart. He is a pinapple as well.

Wow, personally black/brown-yellow and blue-yellow bicolors are my favorite color bettas. He's pretty unique. I have never seen any like him around here. Blues and reds are the most common followed closely by multi's (in the pink and turqoise variations) .

I think yellow is caused by a recessive gene off red?? I could be making this up as I really don't know. But you're right, with most common colors being red and blue for mass produced bettas it would be tricky to come up with consistent yellows and pineapples.

Congrats on your new fish!!

If I was a fan of his music it would have been a perfect name for him.

I'd name him Amarillo. That means yellow in Spanish. I think it's nice and unique.

Yeah that's a nice name too.

On another note... today I've decided for certain how much I'm going to feed him and when, and he's been eating Hikaro Betta Bio-Gold ('New Perfectly Sized Pellets') since I got him on Tuesday.. I've just had a close-up look at him and he seems to have turned a lot more yellow in the black part of him (his head to mid-body), will this be the Betta Bio-Gold causing this as it states it includes colour-enhancers and is it normal?

Update:

He recently had torn fins (see: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=135338), but he's on the mend (although he does have a pinhole-sized hole in his anal fin thats been there for a few days).

His colour has consistently got better since I've had him, and today he built his first bubble nest that he keeps working on and he's very territorial over it!
