which is your most active betta?

i have noticed lately that my 2 CT have been the most active when they see me nearby. my other 3 are longtail types, they're pretty active but their tails to make them a bit less speedy. the CTs are small (tail lengths included) young and a set of speedsters. does anyone have certain betta which are more active than others?

Kigurumi (F) yellow PK 7/4/13, Kurama VT 9/8/13, Zeydalus Salamander EE PK 21/3/14, Ryuk turquoise dragon DeT 8/5/14----Crested Gecko (8ths old) Sven Cal 27/12/11,

RIP: Osiris copper DT, Nel blue VT, Nelliel turquoise grizzle DT, Zaku red cambo, Blitzkreig Pineapple CT, Halloween orange chocolate DeT, Grimmjow, turquoise green CT

Mine are all pretty equally matched. But I will say that my newest one (a CT in the QT) is a bit faster and more energetic than the others. Which is odd, considering he's infested with parasites.

Wystan -- Pastel DeltaT Male -- 3 gallon
Abel Magwitch -- Wild-type RT King Male -- 20-gallon divided
Unnamed -- Red Butterfly? HM Male -- 20-gallon divided

Loki -- American Eskimo Dog -- 8 years
Kiara -- "Domesticated" Feline -- 5 years
Horatio -- Hermit Crab -- 5 years?

I would say my new Plakat boy, swims all day, all the time.

I think my Super Delta would like to swim but his fins make it a drag for him to swim a lot, he gets tired after swimming for awhile and decides to stay still, or lay on the heater.

My most active are my veil tails. Some of them have huge, long tails but they're much more active than my crowntails.

Lol I can't choose between my 3 halfmoon females, if I really really had to I would probably say indigo, simply because my other girls can be a bit mean to her, I might take her out and put her in a tank on her own...


Proud mum of : Gandalf, Lily,(ohm bettas)
Pineapple (male betta)
Jade, Indigo (hm bettas)
a few platys, a few guppies,
a few shrimp,
and whatever else sneaked into my tank while I wasnt looking

If it moves. . .BITE IT!!!

I only have two bettas but of the two my crowntail, Echo is definately the most active. The second he sees you move he's all up at the front of the tank wiggling his little socks (er, fins) off.

I swear he's the fishy equivilant to our male cat, Skatty. Skatty is... skatty. Skittish. Crazy. Hyper.

But yes. Echo my CT is definately more active than Kaze, who is a delta tail (now that he's gotten bigger I'm beginning to think he may be a super delta).
