When it comes down to it, I just like bettas with good fins and form with good color according to strain.

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.

Heavily finned rosetails/HM/feathertails ... I mean, the poor fellas can't move in many cases, and those "balloon/short bodied" bettas look unnatural and in pain. Colour would have to be blue with redwash ... it's just so common.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Least favorite tail type has to double tail first, then delta next.

Least favorite color would be marbles. Most marbles are just unattractive to me.

Interesting thread...

I don't know as I would say dislike per se, but the tail type I'm probably least enthused about is double tails -- likely due to the fact that most I have seen have been VTs in cups, where there's so few with nice fin carriage (even a lot of single tail VTs don't have great fin carriage in cups). Then I'd have to say some HMs and Deltas, because sometimes they just look a little funny, especially when they're not carrying their fins well. I absolutely love when a fish has nice fin carriage.

As for color, probably Cambodian. I don't know why...

That said, a nice personality can trump all. My little guy Sharkfin's a real scrapper and I love it! He had Kostya strutting around and flaring while he flared back with everything he had until I put a piece of paper between them. I joked and said he was like an Irishman (I am, by the way, a large percent Irish). Judging by what fins he has left I don't know as he'd really have caught my eye in full finnage (though I think he'd look amazing as a plakat), but his temperament is just a kick.

Body type... I don't like plakets. Never have. They look so.... bland. But sometimes there are some nice colors that draw me to them. As for the others, I love most of them, even the ones that haven't been bred properly. I'm never going to breed a betta, so if I could just take and care for all of the ugly mal-formed betta in the world I would! Fave would be big ears, though.... ssooooo cute!

As for color... The ones on AB where the title is "Ironman Returns!" and they are red, blue and black.. I don't like those. They're not as pretty to me as they should be. More fake then anything. And yellows or pineabbples don't do it for me. I guess I like colorful fish, but not TOO colorful, lol. I love grizzles, dalmations and multicolors. The more colors the better! And there doesn't need to be a pattern to it.

Hmmm this thread picked up interest :)
I gotta say that I love spade tails, but I am pretty biased there.
I also like the look of plakats. I just like shorter fins, lol.
Colors? Not sure. I like them all. Brown is probably my least favorite.
I do like cellophanes, though.

I've remembered what colour I don't like! Marbles. Fish the colour of flesh just don't do it for me.
