I'm not a huge fan of any fish that can't hold the weight of its fins when it gets on the older side. I can't really pin that down to a single tail type.
Maybe one day you will see a VT and get "love at first sight" when one picks you... :D
I wasn't a big fan of VT's because they were the only betta tail type I knew of for the longest time. I now have 4 of them 3 males and 1 female.
I tend to pick fish by personality. If something didn't "click" when I meet the betta in the pet store I left them. (Had to swear off any new pet only bettas)
Edited to add: I didn't see some other posts that were posted by the time I hit enter.
Betta Fish are like potato chips, it's hard to have just one!
Arm yourself with knowledge. Consider advise. Make informed decisions.
