I love my VTs!
3 males, one female. And I think they're just as gorgeous as the next fish. Which I guess doesn't matter a whole lot to me when it comes to choosing a pet, since even the mutts have their charm. :)

I agree with 1f2f, but I still hold my position in where I stand.

I like VTs very much. The color variety they have always amazes me... I've never seen such colors in other tails. I have one apricot spotted and I adore him. Here in Mexico they are the most common bettas, you don't find any HM, D, SD, PK at the Maskota (which is the equivalent to Petco in the USA). Every time I tell someone the many tail types in bettas, they just don't get it. I think... that every betta is beautiful. Just because VTs are so common and cheap doesn't mean they aren't gorgeous fishes with great personalities.

Both of my boys are VT'S :) I actually perfer VTs over other "fancier" breeds of betta. I love their long flowing tails and I don't really know...I've just always liked them. :]

They're very unpredictable and hardy...that's why I love them. Breed a mutt VT to a mutt VT and you'll get mutts and several suprises. When it comes to breeding even a solid line can suprise. My blue dragon pair has thrown pure reds...ya no joke. VTs are fun to work with but the tail is undesireable.....but I still love em!

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

My very first Betta was a VT. Loved him to death. I think its a lot like dog breeds. Some people want specific breeds. Some are happy with mutts. I love them all!

luv VT... and tbh i think they are less likely to get finrot and start tailbiting! i had 3 VT and they never had fin problems... the odd ick but never fin issues. i think their immune systems are better than high bred DBT and OHM, even HM and SDT... because to get these "high tuned" fish its common to breed siblings and tbh i think that makes them too vulnerable and less stable than fish that are DEFO not related, like VT.... lol.
