Pretty and hard to find, the lemon meringue are back. These rare yellow bettas carry and sometimes display a beautiful yellow/white butterfly pattern. I always liked the idea of a yellow BF betta, but producing them was another story. Now, thanks to the efforts of a network of affiliated betta breeders, we are able to produce some.

Currently primarily in ST version, lemon meringue may get a bit more pricey than their cousin red/white BF. Females are usually solid yellow, with only the males displaying the BF pattern. Other males may not display it but all carry it.

I really wish more breeders would work this color! Meanwhile, whenever available, you will find them here.
