Does anyone here own an Albino betta with red eyes? I know they are very rare, but I heard of 1 person who found one for sale though unfortunetly the betta is now completely blind and not doing the best. :(

I also wanted to share that once at Petco I saw a betta that was bubblegum pink with some white (not to be confused with pink dalmation coloring which is more red looking). It was very similar to this picture here and same tail type, in the store it had more white though. If at the time I had an empty tank i was going to adopt it but it was snatched up the same day. It is real, I saw one sold so this photo is not enhanced. Are these very rare in the hobby? Posted Image

Here's a real rainbow betta!

Albinos all tend to go blind and eventually don't do so well.

Pinks are pretty common in my experience. Heck I've got 3 growing out downstairs :P

And yeah that CT is a marble, that's how he gets so many colors. :)

Real men love pink! If you want to go for a rare colour, try finding a true purple betta. Now those are rare. ;)

They're both beautiful. I'd love to have a betta that looked like either of those two! :)

What a gorgeous marble! It'll be really interesting to see how he continues to change color. :)
