Like 1fish2fish said, we may call them purple, but we've only ever gotten close once. I had my hopes dashed when I saw what I though was a purple female from local stock in my LFS, but I had to walk away in disgust after I saw she was blue with red-wash. (Nothing against the fish, but I hate red wash. Ruins otherwise great coloration.) It;s almost always some kind of wash that causes the coloration, and that's not always permanent.

I still hope one day we'll find the right mix that produces purple. =]

i still swear Purple is purple. i've been yet to see any evidence of blue on him. xD but, it's probably just hopeful wishing on my part. then again, i've managed to get some pretty interesting bettas from Pet Lover's, so one never knows. :d

I think mine are as close as they get...dark blue with red wash that makes them appear purple...maybe more people will work with them.
