Well I got a cambodian blue female to day. It has white body with blue fins and is a crowntail. I was so happy when I found it. And I got it for 3 bucks.

Paints and bettas are two different universes. lol

If you want a blue/purple cambodian, try mixing red cambodian to blue. You should get some red cambodian, blue with red fins, and some blue cambodian (depending on the genetic back ground). If you don't get any blue cambo's in F1, cross it again to blue. You should get BC.

Even better, you can mix opaque to blue and should get mostly blue cambodian/opaque ..... I'm not sure what they call the color.

As stated above, a true purple is suppose to be impossible in the betta world. But who knows, maybe some day they will mutate into such color.

Ugh. I'm tempted to try to learn genetics again and ask all of the breeders working with purples to provide data. It would take forever to get any usable numbers. xD But, I must knowwwwwww.
