I vote HMPK! They're lots of fun IMO. But so are all bettas!

PK and HMPK aren't as fragile as HM, since their fins aren't as long. The benefits of this are that fin rot/biting aren't an issue with PK really, and you can use plastic plants without worrying as much if they will harm the fish's fins.

Junior's tank is the 5 gal MiniBow by Aqueon. It works, however I prefer glass tanks since plastic can scratch.

I actually bought a little rectangular glass 2.5 gal tank at Petsmart last week! It was only $15. Here is is: http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...uctId=11164158

I found both of my Plakats at Petco, but I've seen them at Petsmart as well. :)

Jeremy, that was fantastic! Does it have ample swimming room? I could the put a sponge or canister filter in there! Yay! Ok so tanks done, but looks like a HMPK for me! Hopefully petsmart has some, I will go wen their shipment comes in. Also, is the aqueon mini bow 2.5 gallon good? Would I. Clean this twice a week?

ok, i know you guys are going to be upset, but i realised that while i will get a PK in a year or so, i reaallllyy want a HM now.

So, that is my decision, and i wont be changing it again lol.

What extra care do they need, and would one be fine in a 2.5-3 gallon tank?

I will probably just get either the mini bow 2.5 gallon or the tetra "halmoon-shaped" kit with internal filter.

anybody would like to share pictures of their HM or PK?

I will make a thread from HMs, but i will keep posting on this thread as i know i WILL FOR SURE buy a PK in the near future :)

I will keep everybody updated!
