aefeather In general, I would probably pass on all VT's. HMPK's and Plakats have quickly become my favorite just because they more agile and not as weighed down by their larger fins that they've been bred for. Genetically I find the Plakat-type healthier and more adaptable to a slightly stronger current thus keeping the tank more clean as well too. Less maintenance even in the slightest is a plus for me. And honestly I've never seen a VT that has "wow"ed me. They're usually the common blue/green/red colored ones at Petsmart/Petco. Just IMHO.

LouieTheBlueBetta I would rather pick based on color and personality, but I really like DT's, HMPK's, and rosetail! I never liked double tails until I brought home Leo! :)

I prefer Halfmoon, and second choice HMPK. I had a few VT that were plain solid color but now I am looking for that one.... Halfmoon. VT was okay, but I want something different as my next betta, looking for some fancy fins and colours and the HM is beautiful.

ThatFishThough I'll take any tail type as long as it's uniquely colored. As LBF said, I'm less likely to go for long finned fish and snatch the PKs, but if I do want a longfinned I'll look at VTs first. Unfortunately our PetCo only gets the reds & blues (With the occasional Cellophane... my Chocolate Orange girl was a lucky find) so I don't often buy them on my own accord. I've rescued two of my current VTs and bought two.

moodynarwhal My favorite is crowntail, I'd really like to get a CTPK at some point, but I've never seen one for sale. I also really like PK with stunning colors, although I have one that's all black :)

trahana I have a single veilttail, because I raised it from a petco baby betta. He is PURPLE, so I love him. A nice purple is hard to find, because its red with an overcast of blue, which you can't see unless he holds still and you look up close.

I prefer beautiful colors regardless of tail type, but I'm less likely to buy a veiltail colorful or not.
I also have a HM plakat, crowntail, delta tail, and three females(two crowntails, one tail?). I like plakats, halfmoons, and deltas. My mom Loves crowntails.

firewood04 Do I have to choose? I love them all but lately I am attracted to the smaller fins that do not weigh them down. Any Betta is my love!

thekinetic I love them all but veiltails have always been my favorite, I just love their droopy fins. So cute! <3

RickyTan I like HMs if their caudal is full, followed by HMPK, nothing more graceful than a HM slowly gliding through the water, and when they flare, They are Magnificent, nothing like a mature fully finned HM.

ryry2012 You are missing Crown Tail...!

I like HMPK (halfmonn plakat). They are more active and I don't have to worry about fin biting.
