Is there anyone who know how to get an pink betta?
I think there is more complicated than just follow the colorscale like: red and white=pink

For starters, white and red will never yield pink. You can't apply the color wheel to genetics; it's a completely different area. Think of it like this - in art, white is the absence of all colors, but in science white is actually hiding all of the other colors in the rainbow.

Genetically speaking, it's probably very difficult to get a pink betta. There's cambodians, which have flesh colored bodies and could be considered "pink", but they're not like a vibrant pink. Wait for Pam S to see this, she'll be able to give you better advice.

Genetically speaking, it's a cambodian of some sort. smile1.gif And genetics are the important thing.

I am no expert but I think pink is just red that is kind of transparent?
Maybe you can try a transparent female with a pale red male?

Don't take my word for it though lol2.gif
