I would love that purple betta too. Purple is my favorite color. My new guy (coming) has a lot of purple in him but nothing that deep!

I'm noticing a lot of purples on here have red as well.. so I went looking...

A lavender Betta is genetically a Cambodian Betta splendens with extended Red and a layer of light iridescent blue-green.

Truly Purple Betta splendens are also very new and rare and it appears that the colour results from blending red and blue.

My Royal Blue strain throws purple or violet fry that appear violet at their first show of colour and darken to royal blues within a few months, as the red fades (due to the red-loss factor, L) as the fish mature .

Truly violet coloured Bettas are rare.
