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.
