Yea, as I thought. I google'd it and the only factual information I found indicated that breeders are still trying to cross blue and red but always end up with mixed colours or violets/pinks.
My LFS guy, reckons he is getting '4 purple Bettas in tomorrow'. Queired "Solid purple?", his reponse "No word of a lie, yup." I'll rock up, and I seriously doubt it, but if they're there - I'll buy em all and sell on here for yas? :P
What would they fetch if they were pure purple, $100 upwards of?
