The addiction is hard to fight I had 12 at one point >.< but after illness and old age and escape attempts I have 3. I want more and soon going to be rescuing but just make sure you can attend to all of their needs. I personally find I like having the 3 now because I feel I can devote more time to them, Bigger tanks that are not divided I can do more water changes because it isnt such a chore, two tanks I change water everyday now. It is hard to resist everytime I go into petco I want to bring some home.

I just have one right now and hes spoiled rotten. Im not gonna get another until I can have atleast a 10gal to divide but thats it, no more than 2, and only if I can find the one I want (fish not tank) at a decent price. I have alot of other pets so I dont wanna overwhelm myself

I love all the tail types.
But im more so fond towards VTs. Because the last betta I had was a VT and, well, because theyre more unwanted than the rest, I tend to be more fond of the unwanted types of animals.

the only thing i have against VTs is that since they're considered "useless" as show fish, very few people take the time to breed a variety of color patterns into them, which leads to a LOT of blue, red or blue-and-red fish, and we've already got a super-red and a blue-and-red VT that we love very much, but i like variety.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

That and the fact that they are common- pretty much every store selling bettas has VTs, where as other tail types are either harder to find, or they are just more appealing to most people.

yeah...i tend to go a lot more for color pattern than tail type, so if i ever found an AMAZINGLY colored VT i'd snap him up right away. it just seems to be so rare that you see one make it to a point of sale. most people cull them for being VTs, regardless of their color appeal.

I saw a very pretty bright orange VT at my LFS yesterday...Fancy a road trip to Alabama, homegrown terror?
I've got a HMPK male, a DeT male, a HM male, and a HM female - and planning a rescue/rehome shortly, plus a HM spawn. Dear Lord, I've caught the betta fever, too!
I've owned every tail type except HMDT, CTPK, and DTCTPK. My favorites are the HMDT and the wild types! =)
