I would get a male...there's more of a variety of males than females at my LPS. It doesn't really matter I guess.

Get one that you 'click' with! You never know who it'll be.

I expected my first betta to be a male, so I could split my 10 gallon...turns out, I fell in love with a female instead! So I made a sorority.


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

Yeah i agree that you should choose one that you feel connected too when you see them. Just go to the store and look for ones that catch your eye and narrow them down :]

Betta fish are friends not food



Velvet- Male Crowntail
Pearl- Male Halfmoon
Romeo- Male Halfmoon
Alejandro- Male Betta

Dont rush yourself in the pet store.

Look for quality, color and click!

Take your time, I spent an hour looking at them one day.

Of course the problem with finding one betta (male or female) you connect with is that one is never enough ! Then there is the Bettas you TRY and put back on the shelve but it looks at you with those eyes and the next thing u know, lol

I'm going to say the same as everyone else; pick the one you like the most. You might go wanting a male and see a gorgeous female or vice versa.

It won't matter to their personality :)
