triple or double red apistos?

Is there that big of a difference in rarity, breeding, look, aggressiveness, and size? Just wondering thinking about trying a pair in my planted tank to see if I can get them to make babies

Only difference is how much red color the males have on the fins.

Exactly, they are the same species. There is also an orange flash variety available.

i think that triple reds are a little harder to come by, or at least they were when I was briefly shopping around for them.

Yeah, triple reds have red on their anal fin... as in, 3 fins have red. Double reds don't have the red on their anal fin. It's just a different color variation. I think triple reds look a little nicer. They're just a little more expensive it seems.
