Color is really subjective. There are color classes in shows but really you can't tell if one fish would be more valuable over another based on color.

1fish, could you explain further please? I was under the impression that some colors of Bettas were more rare than other colors, harder to obtain, with recessive genes and perhaps less hardiness in some cases for instance, thus making them less common and thus more valuable. That is true with many species of animals raised by man. Is it not true with Bettas?

Like feathers

Thank you Firekidomaru, he looks lovely when he moves, like feathers or silk. A still pic does not show how this Crowntail moves. I have never had a CT Betta before and am amazed at the grace and style. In pics they just look pointy but that is not at all how they look in person.

Yes, he is getting a ten gallon with a heater. And he is already getting live mosquito larvae everyday for his live food. But I do not understand what you mean by "red is hard to get rid of in genes for breeding". Did you mean to say that the red gene was dominant?

kitten, he is beautiful! But the CT is just another variety, is it not, rather than another "species"?

The fish store owner said mine was imported from Thailand to Florida and then to Houston, Texas where I found him. My guy probably has a bit of jet lag

thailand has beautiful bettas. these 2 country's produce some of the finest breeding stock and i agree about the spring water being good for them as the best fighters are breed and kept in pools of fresh spring water. a few years back i owned 25 bettas all males. everything from the platinum plakat, gold HM, giants,the type of CT in the above picture and a few fan tails.but i had to stop as my buisness was taking up too much of my time.i'm lucky cause in my country we don't need heaters or i'de be dead broke.

My Spartan that has very similar colorings to yours, has a green "tint" to his black body instead of a blue one like yours. I agree he is very pretty, but I don't know about betta conformation.
