I am by no means a "genetic expert" but that no longer holds true about Yellow and Red not being on the same fish. It used to have something to do with the Red loss factor but if you look for "Armageddon" Bettas they have both Red and Yellow in their finnage. My Purple strain throws Green and a sort of Steel, kind of Steel, Black; Purple all together and then put (Gas) Yellow finnage and add Red splashes in there and you have what I have been told can't possibly happen. Here are pictures of a Purple, Black; Yellow and Red male and a Green, Black; Yellow and Red male from my Purple line.
