I am with the others. They just call to me. I will stand there and look at every betta. I will set aside the ones I like, and then when I look at them I just feel I know who I am going to get. I will often decide which tail type I am after that day and what main colors I want, but if someone yells at me to get them I have to.
Just the other day I went in to get my other red VT to be a twin to one of my guys. I picked him up, but while I was there I say this extreme multicolor VT with some curl fin... I just knew I was going to get him, I knew that day before I set out that I would end up with another. I wasn't planing on it but I knew I would.

So I guess it boils down to a mix, I know what I am looking for, I look for the healthiest guy who is flaring and seems happy and healthy, but I get the one who calls out to me the most.

Sometimes I look for the one that needs the most TLC, but doesnt look like it will croak at any minute. Actuallly, most of the time I do that. However, if choosing based only off looks, I go by tail type and color. I like the ones with big tales like HM's. I usually pass on the CT's cause they remind me of spiders and I'm not a fan of males with the short tales. I try to aviod red and blue ones because most of mine are that color.

Or sometimes i just see one and it has "the look".

They have to be alert though and not have any actual illness besides fin rot or ammonia burns. I dont really want to try and cure some disease.

Yeah, when I went in there were about 20 or so bowls with bettas... Some were not very active, and others just had that ugly face (sorry, but the face has to be decent ;) fins have no say before that haha). I had really really wanted a female so I got a female who is so pretty =D Though she never flares... she is too gentle. Should see my Spartan flare FOR her (that's right, not at, but for) it's kind of funny lol
I like the bettas whose colors are unusual. Anyone can own an orange betta... but no one can own one like my Crayola =D Has anyone seen a GREEN betta?? There's one I would die to have

Dragonflie, yeah I got one betta I felt bad for, so I got him. I don't like him -.- no offense to Admiral lol. My other bettas (even my newest members) like to investigate, watch me, follow me, all that jazz... He just... freaks out and sits in his plant -.- His back is slightly bent (birth defect)... damn humanity...lol
