Talking Green Bettas

Everyone seems to want PURPLE bettas, but what about green? Kamehameha seems to be turning green (wooo!), but it is impossible to photograph (at least it was a couple weeks ago the last I tried). He just comes out looking dark sapphire blue. Anyone have pictures of their green bettas? I want to see! I will try taking pictures of Kamehameha tomorrow in different lighting to see if I can show you him.

I am after purple and green myself. Both solid lush colours but they must be extremely hard to breed into existance.

I've seen AQ bettas advertised as purple - which appear lavender, pink, blue or red to me and green - which appear are blue, light blue or white to yellow. Don't understand if perhaps it is the camera that can't catch it, or I'm colourblind or they're just not the colours yet!

Give it a decade and I reckon purple will be lush and green will be close behind!

Funny you should bring up these rare colors...

Today I was at my new go-to betta vendor, and walked out with 3 new boys. Why 3? Well, in the store, one of them appeared to be a solid colored dark plum-purple halfmoon. This place carries near- to show-quality bettas, so I didn't rule it out.

When I got home, it turns out he's actually a deep royal blue. Not really a hint of purple on him.

As a result, his name will be Prince, since Prince has the whole purple thing going on, and since he's actually royal blue.

I knew I was blue/green colorblind, but now it looks like purple might be amongst those as well.

My Blue and Red Dragon looks green when I use the flash. That's about as close as I'll get.

I have the same problem with my dragon plakat Clint. He's purple too but it always seems to want to come out blue even though he is purple.

Hmm... Now I am wondering if it is just the lights I a using. Sometimes he looks purple, sometimes he looks green. But he has been looking green more than purple lately.

Darn, it looks like it is going to be foggy today. When the sun is out I get great natural lighting on my tanks that I want to try taking pictures with!

I think alot does has to do with the lighting because i originally bought her cuz i thought she was blue cuz thats my hubbys favorite color. but then when i brought her home and had her in good lighting i was like o shes purple... the blue tinted water probably made her seem blue too. but dont bettas change color a little bit??

Kryptonite and Gertrude are my two current green bettas. I also had Clover, who sadly passed away a few days ago ... he was what I believe a true green.
