'crowntail' bettas v. 'regular' bettas

So after looking at betta pictures online I realized that the betta my hubby got from the pet shop is actually a crown tail betta.

Was wondering if there are any differences in the two besides looks, anything different that they need or behaviors that they might have, etc.

ive had most of the kinds of betta splendids and they all acted, ate, and live pretty much the same

i fed them all the same thing and they all lived the same time (about 3 years)

The Crowntail betta is just a variety of the "regular" betta splendens, which is the specie you will most likely find at your LFS's. The general care and maintenance should be the same.

i think i have to disagree. crowntail bettas are more susceptible to fin rot and curling. IME, more prone to tailbiting as well. They would love a taller tank as this will help reduce curling. They are a tail-type which would benefit the most from regular flaring under the sun. but if you meant water changes, etc. then we're on the same page ;)
