Unfortunately, most bettas are already treated as accessories, so I don't think a change in color would make things better or worse :/
From that point of view you could even argue that different tail types and such make bettas more likely to be used as accessories, but that's still being bred for...
*sigh* Poor bettas :( Their good looks and easy maintenance compared to other fish will always make them a target for abuse :( :(
Sorry, I didn't mean to go on a rant here
