Least Favorite Betta?

Ok, so we all LOVE betas, but everyone must have a certain variety that they least like. So share! What betta fin type/ color do you dislike.

For me, it would have to be crowntails. Sorry CT lovers, but those spiny rays give me the heebie jeebies o_o

I love all of them but Spade tail are the last tail typs i think of when i think betta so Spade tails are the least in my book.

Ther is nothing on tv... time to watch the fish tank. Bettas hours of fun.

CTs because I can't keep them due to water chemistry. I think each betta is beautiful in their own right but sometimes I can't help but think "That fish is gross" from a breeding standpoint.

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.

I like the spade ^.^ Ludendorff's melt gave him a spade look for a while. Now it's 90% grown back.

I think my least fave tail type is the heavy double finnage. The fish just looks uncomfortable imo!!

Poorly bred rosetail bettas, along with bettas with connected Dorsal, and anal fins. Yes. I have seen them before. So really I hate any type of poorly bred betta

I like perfect symmetry in CTs, not something I see too often.

I think they're all quite pretty and lovely, but I'm really just not a fan of plakats.

It's funny. Plakats a my favorite yet they are the second most discriminated of by the common buyer, lagging behind female bettas due to there lack of finnagge
