Hi, and welcome to BettySplendens.com, one of the largest and most referenced betta websites on the web! Please enjoy your stay, and don't forget to check out our Articles section, written by some of the biggest names in the hobby.
NOTE: I am constantly surprised by the amount of email this site generates, even though it hasn't been updated regularly in awhile. Since I receive several emails daily about buying my bettas, I want to make sure this is seen here: I live in Europe now and cannot sell or ship bettas to the US. I also probably don't know who lives near you who can sell you the specific betta you are looking for. I would recommend going to the International Betta Congress website and checking for a chapter near you.
Have a great visit, and GO BREED BETTER BETTAS!

BASIC BETTA COLORS
Bettas come in a wide array of colors. They can be jewel-bright to soft pastel and even pure white or completely colorless. The colors available can be combined or crossed to make even more colors. For this reason they are one of the most popular hobby fish of all time.
