LOL... I was hoping for a clear favorite but there's a tie between #2, #3, and #4.
I think I've decided to go with the cheapest option and get another girl sent with the one being shipped Monday.
The reason I chose not to go with a girl I would consider breeding (which would be #1 or #2) is because if I do decide to breed again soon I already have fish who's genetics I REALLY want to work with (Dan, Tallahasee, Myrtle, Bubba) plus I am also going to a betta show in late May (First Coast Bettas) so I may end up finding something amazing at the show for really cheap (and not have to pay shipping). Another reason I didn't choose the blue girl even though she's super cute because I already have one blue girl... I know it's kinda superficial but I just want all my 3 girls to be different.
I love the DT girl but just not $12 plus shipping worth, maybe if I was going to possibly breed her one day but while her colors are interesting I have no interest in working with that combination. The marble just didn't grab me quite enough to want her.
I'm not being cheap about it. I still have to set up a permanent tank for these ladies and plants aren't cheap ;)
The girls I'm getting come from a VT spawn and were bred to go to a pet store. While it is an amazing store where the fish are well cared for I still feel like adopting these two is saving them from potentially ending up in a betta death trap... or ending up like poor Freckles :(
