I was at Petco today and thought I'd take some pictures of my store's "black orchids" and "white opals" just for fun so you guys could see what is at my store! They always have a large number of "white opals".

Thank you! This is most helpful.

It is as I thought...the "White Opal" is a normal (and fairly common) white/platinum Betta. I do not know what the "Black Orchid" might be with that lack of pattern and red on the ventrals. Both are lovely but not what they are purported to be.

However...they are not as lovely or hard to find as your avatar!

Wow! Really? My local Petco always has at least three "rose gold" (as they like to call them) bettas like my avatar. I never knew they were hard to find!
