What Bettas are "Rare"?

On google I found pictures of pure colored bettas that are rare. I was wondering what other types of bettas are rare?

My betta seems to be an average betta with dark maroon ( Maroon - Color Sorting ) face and amethyst ( Amethyst - Color Sorting ) body color body with fins that start amethyst and end with a cardinal ( Cardinal - Color Sorting ) color except the anal fin witch is all cardinal.

i got this from http://www.bettaterritory.nl/BT-AABtailtypegenetics.htm

Quote:
There are some very rare forms known which are probably also the caused by de presence of the DT gene:
- Tripletail (TT): As the name already implicates, this type of tail has three tail lobes. Very rare and hard to maintain.
- Hearttail (HT): With this tailform the split of the “doubletail” is only partly present (only on the edge) which gives the tail a heart shaped appearance. People who tried to develop this line, mostly ended up with opspring having complete splits between two tail lobes.
- Fusetail (FT): This tailform is just like the hearttail a “faulty” doubletail were the two tail lobes are fused again. This line is also hard to develop.
- Fuse fin (FF): With this tail form the dorsal, caudal and anal fin are fused to one single fin. This is the rarest form of all.
