Bettas come in a variety of colors, such as red, blue, turquoise, orange, yellow, white, and green. Most are slightly iridescent, and can appear to change color with different lighting or viewing angle. Breeders have also developed different color patterns such as marble and butterfly, as well as metallic shades such as copper, gold, and opaque. (--Wikipedia)
Like any tropical fish, successfully breeding and caring for Bettas involves some research. For starters, their aggressive nature require that their tank mates are chosen properly. Dietary considerations, as well as appropriate tank size and water conditions also play a huge role in proper Betta fish care.
