They don't exist. Bettas don't carry the gene required for albinism. The closest thing I've seen is an albino paradise fish.

I was just reading something about this the other day, wish I could find the link. I read that they're extremely rare and are often born blind or partly so. They don't live very long.

From what I've read they don't exist but it appears with a quick google search I guess my sources are outdated.

It looks like someone on the forum came across one,

Here's one on Youtube but I don't believe it's a true albino. I see pigment in the area of the caudal peduncle and the red eyes look like reflection.

. . . No Albinos?

So. Nobody here on the site owns one?

I really was hoping to see one without doing an external search.

They are extremely rare, born partially if not fully blind, and do not live long. Not sure why you would think anyone here would have one.
