    Can a few of you guys/gals please give me a brief example of the differences in Bettas. CT = Crowntail right? I've enjoyed the beauty of Bettas off and on since I was a small fry myself, appearently blind and ignorantly tho.

    What's the typical kind you pick up at Wally World? (Walmart)
    About how many different types are there?
    CTpk = ?

    Hey Kayla-Bug, this should be right up your alley!!!

    usually what you see at walmart are veil tail bettas. Like you said there are crown tail bettas and there are also half moon bettas i think. I'm sure there are others too.

    You can't usually pick them up at wallmart but there are also plakats, which i believe are a more "wild type". They have shorter fins then veilstails and crowntails and are more active than them.Crowntails have what appear to be spiky fins and veiltails are really flowy. Those are the ones you usually find but I know on rare instances some people have spotted double tails and halfmoons

    here's a site that has the different types of fins

    LOL! Lets see, CT is Crowntail, you are correct! And the typical ones they sell at walmart are the VTs, Veiltails. A CTPK is a Crowntail Plakat. Means it is a mix between a CT betta and a Plakat betta, which is the ones with the long slender bodies. They look like this http://www.splendenspower.cz/files/4.../007unor07.jpg

    That one has really nice finnage.

    Here is a site, which I love, that has all the answers. They know their Bettas, that's for sure!

    No prob. The link I gave has some really good info. The whole forum is pretty good on it's Betta stuff, you know, since that's what it's focused on lol.
