I am off to do a search just to look at pictures of the bettas. I never knew there were so many different kinds. I also know I will like them all .
Nice poll and educational as well.

My soft spot is for HMPKs. HM finnage without the problems :)

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

I don't think they meant health problems. HMs in general are difficult because of their fins. Spawning them is a hit or miss, maintaining them in perfect condition is difficult, and raising them to have a 180 degree caudal spread is even more difficult. Take a lot of work.

I have to agree on that one, I do think that they are nice, I don't think they're quite as nice as halfmoons but I do think they're gorgeous anyway

If they're not bred properly with the right outcrosses to HMPK etc then the fins get way too big, but apart from that I looove them!
