What to look for when buying bettas

I was wonder what to look for when buying quality bettas. Like as in fins, colour pattern, body, size ect. Wether it's like from a store or of aquabid and breeders. That would be good for breeding. I don't have a specific goal in this first spawn but want to make sure some decent fry come out to breed in f2.

depends, look up ibc judging standards to have an idea on form and color, I suppose. even though you are not competing but at least you will know what makes a good competitive betta standout and look for those qualities in buying a betta.

for me, i go for conection with the betta as in there are some interactions when we stare each other in the eyes whether I find them with my local importer, breeder, LPS, LFS.
