I think the halfmoons and deltas are known for the longest finnage. But those longs fins come at a price. Many end up as tailbiters because the fins are so heavy. They don't do well in community setups either. Their long fins make them slow and an easy target.

i agree with thekoimaiden. Halfmoons are known for the biggest fins, with the mutation known as Rosetail or Feathertail proving just that. just last night, i saw this boy on Aquabid, and i'm shocked at his fins:

bubba's lovely, but looks like he has a split in his dorsal. :V that's the biggest issue with big-finned bettas. :I they rip and nip their fins so easily. x-x

the way i found that works to stop a betta from tail biting, is to give them a good number of plants, and rearrange them every time you do a full water change. it worked for Dante, who would destroy his tail every time i'd go out with friends, and it's stopped Ichi from tail biting again, and i'm doing it with Todd, my rosetail, to prevent him from tail biting. :B

Yes, feather tail and rosetail bettas typically have the longest fins, but under no corcumstances would I recommend any type of heavy finned Betta to anybody before they get it. Usually many long finned bettas will tailbite because of the heavy finnagge. There is virtually no cure to this as its not stress related and because of the finnagge. I would recommend a Plakat or female betta as IME/O they are usually more active and less prone to tailbiting
