Yes, the greens are my pick too, but purple and green are difficult...Ihate when they say it's green and you look and its blue! Or they say purple and its red or orange and its red! Good luck with your search!

None of the fish posted on this thread are truly purple. The only known fish to ever come close is the one pictured in the bettysplendens article.

I have a delta tail purple female with no blue wash, she had a blue wash when I first got her but now she is pure purple.
I also have a male that has a complete purple body with blue, red & white fins.

The only purple guys I've seen were copper lavender in color. It's too bad that purple is hard to come by, because it sure makes for some gorgeous fish.

Sparkle was more of a lavendar than a true pureple and his fins were red. So I've never seen a truely purple betta either. But Emerald was a completely deep green betta and never changed colors. Luigi was completely green when I saved him from Petco, but then changed to deep blue after about a month. Snowy was white when I saved him the next year from Petco and then he turned green and blue winthin that month. Rainbow had red, green, and blue all at the same time. Shimmer actually shimmered a bit when the light hit him just right. I think he was purplish or green but became more blue over time. So I have trouble remembering his original color. I have no idea why my current and past fish keep changing colors. It doesn't bother me, I just find it odd.
