No, you're allowed to have preferences in things!

I would like to have one of each tail type including a veiltail but I don't want a blue or red one. I feel mean about that too but I saw a white one with blue spots on it and I'm holding out until I see another "weird" veiltail.

Also I just have a weakness for white-and-blue .. I got a white and blue delta tail yesterday. I also saw a white and blue plakat I want but I live w/my mom right now and I think she will kill me if I get another one this soon :)

current pets: Alejandro Marmalade

Rehomed bettas (because of my move):
Cornelius Buttknuckle, Limoncello Dandy Lion, Cumulus Meriweather, Nimbus McCloud

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.

VT girls look better most other betta girls. VT girls fins are perfect (I do not like male VT, too long fin, too lumpsy--spell???).

My Avatar are my green dragon baby took when he is 3 months. He are now 4 months. Father is black dragon; mother is dark blue full mask but every betta babies are green. Go figure!

I would like to get one betta of each type to see what I like and why. I still need a veiltail and a plakat tail. Also .. I have no females and I feel a little bad about that. :/

I have a few more tanks but my outlets are getting all used up . . ha ha. No more places to plug in filters and lights and such.

You can like what you like. As long as you're not insulting about it. ;)

I adore my red VT girl. Cleo's the bomb, keeps us all vastly entertained.

I'm personally not a fan of overly long fins. So - I now keep females and plakats (and wilds! soon..) aside from my one HM boy but he'll be my last long fin. I do really enjoy looking at everyone's long-finned boys, however! They are a joy, just not for me as far as keeping bettas goes.
