I'm sorry 2 say, I believe u may be mistaken about the technicality concerning "true" green bettas, because Jade is a breeder verified "true" green HM.
Certain lighting sometimes makes him look turquoise, or even blue, but keep in mind that there are two base colors for green.... Yellow & blue. When light hits his scales at different angles, it reflect the wavelengths of these shades differently, and can alter perception of color. To me, green is one of the hardest colors to showcase thru an image.... And true green fish are rare & very special. I have searched for a true green betta, like Jade, for over a decade! Finally he is a reality :)
