True Purple Betta?!

Has anyone ever seen a betta with this coloring in real life? I see occasional pictures like this one, but I have NEVER seen one come even close to this one. I hear they are very rare and in the early stages of breeding, but I would KILL for one!

My guy arrow is the closest to purple I've ever seen. Purple is one of the hardest colors to get in the betta world. All the ones that have been close have been a fluke. Breeders have tried to create it but it doesn't breed true.

My guy arrow,

Closest thing I've personally seen is my Betta, Mr. Pink, who has hot-pink fins but his body is iridescent violet.


There's also this guy on aquabid at the moment:

But you should also view this thread, because user Calmwaters own(s/ed) one:

Well if we're gonna post pictures lol



Although he does have red on his head, which leads me to believe he's purple but will eventually change to red as he ages.

Pretty sure that first pic has been enhanced... a betta that purple has to be fake, to a degree at least.

Closest purple boy I'm come across is the boy below- he's a dragon, yeah, but he's still got a lovely purple tint to him.

I had a boy that looked almost purple, but it turned out he was blue. :( Loved him anyways!

Mmmm...purple...I love me some purple. If they ever get the genes figured out I MUST HAVE ONE...haha. :)
