My last Betta Fish: What color should I get? Help me out!

Hey guys. I am getting another betta. But this time I am gonna plan on it instead of impulse buy it cause it has horrible finrot or because it was ich etc.etc.

So I have a crowntail (...somewhat) and a HMPK.
I want a long flow-y tail and I want a solid colored betta.

Post pictures or videos of your bettas with long or flowly tails! Right now I Am really loving the solid reds!

I once saw a yellow betta. It was solid yellow. Thats cool. Do you think grey ones exist?

Id go with a classic VT. They get really long tails, my boys twists and curls as he moves. And most of them seem to be solid.

Personally I love half-moons! They're slightly more expensive than veil tails but I think they are super beautiful! The pics above are all half moons!

Personally, I don't plan the tail type/colour/pattern of bettas I want to buy because then when you show up to the pet store you end up dissapointed when there isn't a betta exactly how you pictured it. That's just me though. ;)

I have a halfmoon male juvenile who may be a grizzled grey-ish with a black kind of butterfly pattern. Not sure if he will turn more black or not, but is this what you mean? Or more solid grey? I will also post a pic of my solid yellow halfmoon- i loooooove the yellows. :)

I always go to the store/internet knowing exactly what I want so I don't go on a shopping spree or buy one I don't have room for lol If I wanted a black/red/white betta and I waited half a year until one finally showed up on AB and I've never been happier!
