This is one of my new guys. :) He looks more blue until a light shines on him and then he looks like this!

Thanks! Reagan that's cool. I just thought he looked like a Jasper. I saw him and couldn't resist. I am normally more a hm person. But he came right out and flared at me when I looked at him. Your boy is lovely!

Thanks! It's funny. I've been trying to get a picture of him where he's blue like in the picture from aquabid, but that's just not happenin' just yet. At least he's pretty either way and so much fun to watch.

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 :)

Also you can read a few breeder remarks on the subject that there are a few that are trying to breed dark forest green bettas, but because they are so rare there having problems keeping the Dark color.

Exactly.... Which is why Jade is more of a minty-emerald green, rather than that deep forest green, lol. I may be going back for another green HM later this week, which is a dark emerald salamander. I almost bought him Sun, when I picked Hawk up, but my husband would've killed me if I had blown my entire paycheck (am a waitress) on rare bettas!! Lol
