Finding a Green Betta Fish

Due to upcoming changes in my life, I have decided not to buy another Betta until I have settled into where I am going. HOWEVER, I have made a deal with myself that if I ever see a green Betta at the store I will buy him on the spot. With that being said, how hard is it to find a green Betta, particularly a Crowntail?

If you want a solid green boy, pretty freakin' hard- they're very uncommon. However, if you are fine with a fish that has a bit of green in it (there are many bettas that are blue w/ areas of green on them) that won't be a challenge.

True green and purple bettas are probably the rarest, out of any tail type. However, they're a lot of beautiful turquoise bettas that have a green-ish tint. Don't give up, you may find a true green betta, although they are extremely rare

I seen a green King Betta, but my interests lie with Crowntails. I work at Walmart and we get new Bettas every Thursday, but rarely anything other than dark blue Crowntails. The fanciest one I've seen thus far was a pink Betta with purple edged fins... I thought it would sell first BUT it sold 3rd to last... I should have bought it for my daughter.

I just checked out the Aquabid website, and while I didn't see any green CTs, those black ones sure do look wicked

I'm new here so I wouldn't have noticed the PM if you hadn't informed me. I agree with you on that last link; it is one fine Betta.
