What type of betta should I get?

Im setting up a divided 5 gal and just wanted to know what kind of betta you like?

I am partial to halfmoons and double tails but im not a fan of the fin care that goes a long with them...im looking for something with a little less finnage :)

Feel free to share info/stories and pics! I have 4-5 weeks to decide and would like to learn all I can about the different types.

I would suggest a female or a PK, HMPK Plakat's are really adorable, and females are short finned, only the males HM's or CT's crowntails, and OHM's are very long finned and oh boy, those are my favorite ones, and I am addicted to them..hahaha.. and some Long finned Veiltails, but those are some that would be better options for you, if you want short fins.

i would suggest a male crowntail :) but i wouldnt recommend putting a female on the other side, the male will release hormones that could stress her out and make her sick
