View Full Version : Favorite Betta

Just thought I'd start a thread for everybody to talk about their favorite bettas and what they look like:

Tri-colored (accents) Crowntail; black body, with blue to read to white fins and tail. He was beautiful and already sold.:scry:

I have a female who is white with blacked out eyes,and it looks like someone took a charcoal pencil and tried to shade her in. She's purty. :1luvu:

My Moose was a pretty fantastic betta. He was a solid red crowntail with a dark body. His finnage was absolutely stunning, one of the most full-finned pet-store quality fish I've seen. But it was really his Mr. Aggro personality that made him. He would flare at anything and everything, and made some pretty impressive nests.

I had a beautiful opal white/green colored male that I got from Petco. I think he was a crowntail. He was small, and gorgeous, but I never got to see him grow up because one day he was being a little to curius and got sucked up the python. I immediatly stopped it and reveresed the flow. It was too late. I even let him float around the tank for like, 2 hours because I thought maybe he was just in shock- but no luck.

That being said- I am very partial to crowntails, and my white one (who is getting alot of red btw) is a halfmoon- and they have great fins too!

I really like crowntails, but any betta can be verry pretty, so im not sure I really have a favorite.

Heres a picture of my yellow crowntail, (He takes pictures the best lol)

My favorite betta is my most recent. I found him at the store and couldn't believe how beautiful he was. He's a halfmoon dragon. His name is Kotetsu (lronclad)
I have to say dragons are probably my favorite. Dragons basically have near metallic scales that shine in light. I also like mustards, which are blue/dark colored betta that have yellow/orange fins near their bodies that fade to dark colors at the tips.

Wolf_Eyes! I cannot beleive how beautiful your better is!!

I asked my LFS what kinds of Betta they get/carry and was told: "Both kinds! Male and Female..."

I can't imagine finding a Betta like Wolf's in a store. You usually only see Betta of that quality from breeders.

Right now I've got three males and one female. My partner has three males on her desk.

Mithril is probably my most impressive Betta. Here's a pic of him:

EDIT: Y'all need to post pics!!!!

Nice Sarkazmo, love the LOTR name. it fits nicely. And WOW, thats a nice dragon, wolf eyes. I alwasy wondered what the difference in dragon bettas was. Guess thats a pretty good example, huh.

I can't say I have a favorite, they are all so beautiful.

This guy is one of the nicest I have ever seen in a LFS.

That one looks almost like an arowana!

Roscoe is my first - and favourite - betta! I snagged him from the back at work (PetSmart) before he went onto the main floor ;)

And this one to show his lovely iridescence!
