I love VT's. I currently only have 1 VT, the first betta we bought. My husband picked out a CT, I picked out one I THOUGHT was a VT at Petco, but he's more of a combtail or a very badly done CT, fell in LOVE with a gorgeous white HM, and then rescued a beautiful CT from a deathtrap at Walmart. I've promised my husband no more fish, but I told him if I ever find a purple butterfly VT, all bets are off. Because that fish is going home with me. Fortunately, in our area, the few butterflies we see, are almost entirely CT's. I've seen some gorgeous VT's in blues and yellows, reds, oranges, greens, and teals, but very few multi colors around here, and none in the purple range.
