LOL........

I call copper with what ever shading as coppers. That's a beautiful solid copper.... what people name the color of their bettas (to me) is often confusing.

I know right. Don't call it a Black orchid. It is black with some blue.lol. I guess it is easier to just use the one term though.

Soooooo. Are there any breeders currently working with coppers? And when I'm talking about purple with copper, I mean something like these:

I wouldn't call any of those purple... just varying shades of copper. Also remember that copper is one of those colors that can get really skewed in a picture.
