Smile Aggressive betta types

I'm rather curious as to what the most aggressive type of betta is?
I've heard plakats followed by crowntails were pretty aggressive, and half-moons being the most "insecure" or shy.
For me it's the opposite. I've got a shy crowntail and a half-moon with an attitude.
I wonder if color has anything to do with it. Both my solid blues were vicious, but neither blacks were.

So what's your most aggressive betta?

And on a side note, do triple tails really exist?? I thought I saw one ONCE, but may have been mistaken...

My VT is the most aggressive of my boys.... Nova will flare, but not to the same extent as Zakut (he's also A LOT smaller than Zakut and most likely very young still)

it varies from betta to betta. i have a really sweet plakat female. and a flare-monster of an HM. but, then, on the other side, i DO have an aggressive CT and a shy HM. so, there is no set 'most aggressive to least aggressive'...

I had a female that I thought was a VT since she came from walmart but was told she was a PK. She killed a giant female and ripped the fins off her mating partner.

Most mellow would be the male on the right. I think he remembers when they were all still very young and the females beat him up. Not really sure why he can be with the females..the only think I can think of is maybe because they all grew up in teh same tank together? Petco labled him as a female. I keep a close eye on them but all he does is a semi flare and then promptly swims away

i seen a pic online of a triple tail but only once
