is brown a common color?

    I was at a pet store a while ago and i remembered that they had a couple brown female bettas, is it rare to have these in pet stores? they were a bit cheaper than the others they had.

    to some extent it is rare. the "chocolate" bettas are one of the... fancy? (for lack of better word) colors. as for price, females are usually cheaper than males anyway. However, I'm not sure if you're seeing a true chocolate, or if the bettas yellow is so dark it appears brown...

    i agree brown colors arent really common.. at least in my area... LOL i agree to that also, females tend to be cheaper than males...

    whole 'nother story.... because of popular demand for the technicolor hybrid bettas, with the cool fin variations and stuff, I doubt the ones with wild coloration would be more than a couple dollars.... like the feeder guppies VS fancy guppies, for example.

    IMO wild bettas would be awesome to keep. Just because they are wild LOL

    not that wild bettas wouldn't be awesome to keep (don't get me wrong, I'm willing to get an Imbellis anyday), its just the demand isn't as high for them as it is for the fancy bettas.

    totally agree! you dont see wild bettas alot, so if you see one its the chance of a life time LOL

    I have only ever seen one completely chocolate coloured betta and I bought her! Her name was Cassandra. She was a betta female, not very expensive, but completely chocolate coloured from nose to tail. Not a hint of another colour on her, here are photos but she was difficult to photograph. She never stayed still!
