This is a contest for all green bettas, any type! If your betta has green as a big part of its coloring, you can enter it!

This is not an official BettaFish.com contest. It has mod approval.

The contest will begin Monday, February 17th at 8 a.m. and end Monday, March 17th at 8 p.m.
Any fish entered before the start of the contest will not count unless submitted again after the start of the contest.

The winners will be chosen by the judges (myself, CosmoTheCutie, and Reagan) and posted the next day.
The three top winners (gold, silver, and bronze sort of) will win a drawing of their winning fish.
I look forward to seeing the green fish out there! :-D

Good luck!

How about Turquoise fish, do they count? They are blue under bulbs but green-ish in things like sunlight or ambient lighting.

Yes, I think that would be alright, as long as we can see their green-ish-ness on the picture :) .

Mortie is turquoise... here he is with the flash on... his greenish is showing ;) lol I hope the true green betta pictures start rolling in soon. They are beautiful.

Awe. That's somewhat disappointing. I've seen some beautiful pictures that appeared to look amazingly green. Like a nice deeper darker green.
That would explain why I have never seen one in person.
Yeah it is, turquoise is pretty much as close as it gets to green, although some are more "green" than others. Colors work in layers and bettas, I don't believe are able to get the green pigment or something like that. But as for the layers it starts with blue on the top with the thickest coating then black, red and yellow; this is why most yellow fish are almost see-through because they don't have many layers of color on them like a Blue fish does. :)

This is Darryl :) He's a double tail betta, though I never could figure out what kind of double tail. When I got him he was pretty well a greeny opalescent white but after he settled in he got some nice greeny-aqua color spots. This is him peeking out from his lil house. (Side note: I had to rehome him last week as I'm moving tomorrow, but before that I was his first and only owner - if that disqualifies me, just let me know) Either way, here's my Darryl <3

Whoops, I mispoke; it is Blue, Red, Black and then Yellow.

They are all looking lucky ;-)

missavgp, your crowntail has the same name as my boy. He is a gorgeous crowntail. I don't believe I have ever seen colouring quite like that before.

Your bettas are beautiful (Though I has a soft spot for the colours green and blue, so a turquoise betta is a bonus) .
