These are all gorgeous bettas but may I ask why do most breeders prefers short anal finned females for breeding then long finned?

I have a question about anal fins in Plakats... can they be longer than the caudal fin? Or is it better for them to line up with it?

It depends on what kind of plakat you have. There are 3 different show classifications- traditional plakat, symmetrical and asymmetrical. Symmetrical plakat you want the anal to be broad and line up with the caudal. Asymmetrical and traditional you want to come to a point, past the caudal. See here-

Symmetrical:


Asymmetrical:


Traditional:

Ohh. I see now, thank you! I never really knew as much about Plakats as other types of bettas. Thanks!
