Double forked crown tail?

So... I've read in different parts of the forum anytime a double forked crown tail shows up that they're really lucky because they're super rare or... well rare any ways.

Is this true? I'm just wondering because I have a clear double forked crown tail female I purchased. Not that it'll change my delight in having her but I was just wondering.

An if this is the wrong spot sorry! I'll repost it in the proper one.



sorry for crappy picture. was with my phone.

An I'm pretty sure everyone knows what I'm talking about. But just incase, and for the fact there's probably a different name for all I know haha.

This is one of my 4 rays Charz





my 2 ray ct Louie:




louie the first day i got him:


Louies a little rarer then your usual 2 ray ct, because of his coloring. some members would call him a 4th of july betta (witch is a rare find) because he has white red and blue, some would call him a pastel, or a marble (he seems to be marbling out a little)


My other 4 ray ct is Nero:





Nero is a Cambodian 4 ray ct but his body ranges from white through a light red to silver when hes excited :)

she is super tiny lol. Her name is Pinky.

So are they rare or is it just kind of like a area type thing? Some places have them more readily then others?

not really rear it just depends on their wholesalers (the mass breeders who they buy their store fish off) and what they order

EXAMPLE: DJ's (one of my fish shops) will order Veil tails and occassionally a few Crowns and OMG they HAD THE CUtEST yello sd lady LOL. and they will get a range of coloured vts a few coloured cts and such

Petcare: (other store) order in the same way vts and cts,

DJ's charge $10 for vts $13 for cts and sd (only ever seen one sd there)

Pet care (is currently having a sale on fighters >:/ i cant house any more atm)
usually round the smae prices but i questioned a HM sale if i order hm in $25 bucks i was like WHAT THE $#%* better be a damn good fish!
